Mini-Polo! at Kinson Swimming Pool
To encourage young people to continue with aquatic activities once they have completed their Bournemouth Swimming Academy swimming lessons, Kinson Swimming Pool in conjunction with the Amateur Swimming Association has been running Mini-Polo! training sessions since June 2008.
Mini-Polo! is a junior version of water polo, aimed at young people aged between 8 – 14 years old. The game is usually played in shallow water and the rules are modified to make the game easier to learn.
The Centre Manager at Kinson Swimming Pool is delighted with the new Mini-Polo! sessions: “Mini-Polo! is a recognised progression from swimming lessons to keep young people interested in and involved aquatic activities. We hope to attract more people so that we can play friendly matches and progress from there. Sessions run on a Friday evening from 7.00pm until 8.00pm.”
Councillor Beverley Dunlop, Cabinet Member for the Economy and Tourism added "I understand that Mini Polo is a highly competitive and spirited game and we are delighted to be launching the new sessions at the Kinson Swimming Pool.”
