The London Water Polo League has named their new primary junior water polo trophy in memory of Ron Turner. Ron was a much-loved Penguin who was highly respected for his skills and achievements during his playing career and for his life-long nurturing of youngsters coming into the game. His memory remains very dear to our Club.
The Ron Turner Memorial Cup will be presented to each of the winning junior teams in the London League for their photos and memories, with the individual players receiving a separate medal as a keepsake. The trophy ‘lives’ at Whitgift pool and is available at the conclusion of each junior competition.
Gill Turner, Ron’s widow and still very much an active member of Penguin with our masters swimmers, says she is delighted to see Ron honoured in this way.
A fantastic recognition of Ron’s passion for the junior development of our sport.
