2015 Open Water Swimming Festival incorporating the ASA North West Region and ASA North East Region Championships, PSUK Championships; Cheshire County WPSA Championships and Lancashire County WPSA Championships will be held on Sunday 21st June at the Watersports Centre, Salford Quays.
Following the withdrawal of funding by UK Sport into Women’s Water Polo the ASA decided to commission a full review of Water Polo within England. The aim of the review was to look at all aspects of the game, from grass roots development, through the talent pathway to elite performance. The review covered the governance structure, development and talent programmes and the competition pathway.
The review was presented to the ASA Sport Governing Board and members of the water polo community on Sunday, 25th January 2015 and was well received by attendees.
