Teams all set for action-packed U15s National Age Group ChampionshipsDecember 16, 2022
The Swim England Water Polo U15s National Age Group Championships take place this weekend, which will see 26 teams competing at Ponds Forge International Sports Centre in Sheffield.
The boys’ competition will take place on Saturday 17 December, with the girls’ event the following day.
Fifteen boys teams will be in attendance and 11 girls teams as they battle it out to secure national titles.

Both of those clubs return to the competition this time around as they look to become back-to-back winners this weekend.
