Today was the first day of training for waterpolo for the year. I have decided to go back to my old club. It’s been a while since I last played and I was a bit nervous about hitting the pool again. Today was the clubs annual “Rookies day” so I decided to head down for a gentle start to the new season. I am pretty fit but waterpolo requires a whole other level of fitness and I was quickly reminded that it is going to take me a while to get back in to the swing of the game.
For anyone looking to try something new and meet some new people then I can definitely recommend a team sport. Whether you join a GLBTI team or a mixed team it’s a great way to build fitness, confidence and friendships.
I am not sure yet if I want to play in the local competition but I am looking forward to getting back into training again with some of my old buddies.
Some of my best memories are from all the shannonigans that I got up to with the team.
There are a lot of new faces in the team now and a new uniform but this pretty much look like business as usual. So it looks like I am gonna be blasting away the fat over the next month and I can already feel chlorine seeping through my veins again.
