During the last week of the August school holidays a few of our girls were fortunate enough to attend a waterpolo clinic held at Chispite School, with International players and Coaches from Australia, America, Holland and South Africa. Some of our Senior age group players then proceeded to play at the inaugural St. Johns Waterpolo Festival were they gained invaluable experience and good exposure to a sport that is still in its infancy in terms of development at Peterhouse.
We will be sending U14, U15, U16 and 1st Teams to compete in the All Trophies Tournament and National Selection at Chisipite on the 6th and 7th of October.
