This week, after a number of false-starts, the Poly finally had their first session at the London Aquatic Centre (LAC) in Stratford. The team swam in the main competition pool for an hour, before moving to the diving pit for a game against Penguin. Going forward, this will be a regular, weekly training session, and it allows the team to train in one of the world's best aquatic training facilities. Importantly, it finally gives the team a pool in which they can train to the level that fits the ambitions of the club.
These ambitions include using the LAC to encourage and expand the club's youth team, and the potential to host tournaments and training camps.
The move to the LAC has taken a lot of work, and everyone would like to thank those involved for all their efforts in getting us to this point.
