As Team GB reveal their new kit for Rio 2016, we are proud to show off the smart new kit for our under-13s mixed water polo team.
Supported by the Postcode Community Trust, the new swimming costumes and polo shirts sport the stylishly simple Penguin logo, designed by one of our senior water polo players, Paul Skerm.
The kit helps to cement the formation of our home-grown squad of twelve players, based at Hillingdon.
“This is a very exciting development for our Hillingdon Juniors.” says team manager, Sue Seagroatt. “We were previously competing at this level in joint teams with Enfield, but having a cohort of players who train together enables better preparation and team spirit under the high level coaching from Claudio Palumbo.”
“The kit is tremendous boost in helping to build a competitive team identity. Perhaps it was no coincidence that when they wore it for the first time the squad had their first win in the London Water Polo League.”
“Another benefit is that the children can now be photographed for the website and social media – ASA safeguarding rules require them to be clothed from the waist upward. It’s things like this that make a difference in raising the profile of our players and of water polo as a sport.”
