Spartans, Eat Well, for Sunday We Play Waterpolo

Yeovil District Swimming Club have a VERY exciting week ahead! Not only is it their Spring Fling Level 3 Open Meet on 21/22 April 2018, which is completely full, but they have just announced the formation of their new Waterpolo team - The Yeovil Spartans!

The Yeovil Spartans is the brain child of two long-time waterpolo enthusiasts and players - Rachel Middlemast and Hannah Taylor. Rachel is the Director of Sport at Westfield Academy and has been playing at a high level for over 25 years. Hannah, a local shiatsu practitioner, has participated in the sport in both the UK and Australia for over 30 years. Both are on a mission to bring the game to the local area and spread the word about the many benefits of this exciting sport.

“We’re both passionate about getting waterpolo 'out there' and making it more accessible to all. It’s a great game, fostering teamwork, planning, tactics and strategy. It’s fast-paced and competitive. Waterpolo is great for stamina and sprinting speed. It’s a Hiit (high intensity interval training) workout - but in the water. And it’s great fun!!” said Hannah.

Club Chairman, John Dixon said “We are delighted to be incorporating a new waterpolo team, the Yeovil Spartans under the YDSC umbrella. It is very exciting to be involved in its formation, which Hannah and Rachel will drive forward with much success I am sure. I know our swimmers will be keen to try a new aquatic discipline and we look forward to welcoming new members into the Pink Army!”
