OTTER LUTRA'S STRONG START TO BWPL

Otter Lutra had a strong start to their BWPL season in Division 2 this weekend at Grantham with a 21 - 5 win over Liverpool and a loss of 13 - 9 to an experienced Sheffield team.

Congratulations to Otter BWPL debutantes Isabella, Natasha, Grace, Pippa, Sarah EK and Lucy Mai who stepped up to the mark as if this were their 5th season and not their first!

With the team the youngest in the division (12 of the 13 players at the weekend were u18) they will have their work cut out for them. However led in the water by the indomitable Lindsay - our longest serving polo player - as captain and Ciara as vice captain, this weekend showed undoubted strengths.

Otter 150th Celebrations: Swimming & Water Polo Festival

In 2019 Otter wanted to celebrate its 150th anniversary in style and so joined together with Swim England, which was also celebrating 150 years of the swimming governing body, and planned a unique swimming and water polo festival. We wanted to put on an event which was a bit different to the normal open meets. Something that brought together masters swimmers from across the country to celebrate all the best bits of masters swimming: the camaraderie, friendship, occasional athleticism, and perhaps a little competition. The programme paid homage to Otter and swimming’s history, resurrecting the plunge and some old English backstroke for the day, alongside more recognisable events.
