Team Coach, Alastair Roberts (Worthing SC) writes:
The Sussex squad had a majority of players who had previous experience of playing in Men’s teams in the British Water Polo League so the team management were confident they had a very competitive team that would compete well at this level of competition.
With four teams entered, the competition was run as a league with every team playing the other 3. These are the individual match reports. Continue reading

At our Annual Council Meeting in June we did not receive nominations for the roles of County Secretary or Honorary Treasurer. These are important positions in the Sussex ASA and finding the right people to take on these roles is essential if we are going to be able to help clubs and swimmers in the future.
The County Secretary is the main contact for Sussex County ASA dealing with correspondence with Clubs, members and third parties such as the ASA and ASA South East Region. To do this job well you need to be organised and a good administrator, see the full Job Description here.
The role of the Treasurer is central to the future of Sussex ASA and provides strategic financial support including.
The dates for the Winter Competition have moved to 15 &16 October 2016.
The change has been brought about because the ASA moved the date of the National Counties Team competition which this year will now be held in Sheffield on the 23 October and we wanted to avoid a clash.
We have also moved the venue for the Winter Competition from Horsham to K2. This will allow swimmers to have more space, a warm down pool and be able to prepare properly for qualification into the South East Region Winter Competition.
The Sussex Winter Competition will be the last opportunity to qualify for the Regional Competition with entries closing on 17 October.
More information about the programme and qualifications times for the Sussex Winter Competition will be published over the coming weeks.
