The LYG competition is always an exciting event. Not only a great showcase for our sport but also an opportunity to see all our friends in the London water polo community and network. Thirteen London Boroughs entered teams this year : City of London, Hillingdon, Wandsworth, Lewisham, Southwark, Bromley, Harrow, Barnet, Hammersmith & Fulham, Enfield, Croydon, Ealing and Haringey.
Our club assembled a special team to represent Hillingdon, due to the criterion that players must reside in Hillingdon. As well as experienced players, this provided an opportunity for some who had never competed.
Games began with the Group stage and our results were: Hillingdon v City of London 1:5, Hillingdon v Wandsworth 6:5 and Hillingdon v Lewisham 7:2. Having come second in our group, we then progressed to the Cup Draw, where our results were: Hillingdon v Southwark 2:8, Hillingdon v Hammersmith & Fulham 3:4 and Hillingdon v Haringey 4:6. Over all we came 8th.
Thank you to all our team who played with great enthusiasm, our vocal supporters and to Kim Truelove from the London Borough of Hillingdon. Thank you also to all the other teams, the organisers, especially Ian Grimwood, and London Swimming.
