Mike Coles appointed Regional President

Swimming teacher and water polo referee Mike Coles (Weston-super-Mare SC and Bristol & West Water Polo League) became President of Swim England South West at the region's Annual Council Meeting on 8 September 2019 in Taunton.

Mike and Joy Coles

Born and bred in Weston-Super-Mare, so Somerset through and through, Mike, aged four years, was introduced to swimming by his father, former Weston-Super-Mare Swimming Club captain and Life Member, Doug Coles.

Mike went on to represent the club at competitive swimming and diving. Then he discovered water polo, and there was no stopping him. That was in 1968 and his entry to the dark side was complete!

Since then Mike’s involvement at all levels with Water Polo has covered competing, coaching, officiating and sitting on committees.

Somerset ASA has no doubt that Mike will be an excellent ambassador for the Region and for Water Polo during his period in office, bringing his own unique character and personality to the role, as well as his passion and drive for the sport he has loved for more than 40 years.
