A Masters swimming 2020 Resolution: Be a Threat

When playing water polo, I have for years thought that the cry, “Don’t slough off of Mark!” meant don’t leave me unguarded.

Masters swimming: Swimming to the end of my tether

欧洲杯竞猜I now know what it’s like to play water polo on a very short leash. The annual Napa Valley Masters Water Polo tournament last month worked out an ingenious scheme to ensure that none of the six teams suffered the full burden of my age and skill. Not only was I a “roving sub” in […]

Masters swimming: Davis masters strong in UCD tournament

欧洲杯竞猜I am proud to say that the Davis Water Polo masters won two, almost three, of their four games in the Davis Men’s Water Polo Club’s annual tournament last month. This made us 13th out of 16 teams, which, I think, does not reflect how well we did. I was allowed to wear fins, putting […]
