Salient. Victoria University of Wellington Students' Newspaper. Volume 31, No. 25. October 8, 1968



Club nights are held during the summer on Mondays, 7-8 p.m. at the Thorndon Pool as from the end of October.

Competitions are to be held at Thorndon Pool probably on Wednesday nights.

Facilities are available for swimmers, divers, and water polo players, men and women.

Water Polo is an excellent game for rugby players wishing to keep relatively fit over the summer vacation without formal training.

Trips to other centres are arranged, and for anyone interested in competition in a social atmosphere this is a must.

A women's water polo team could also be formed, if sufficient interest is shown.

The Club encourages and provides an avenue for any people interested in competitive swimming on local, provincial or national scale.

Last year Vic fielded a women's water polo team in the Wellington water polo competition and had an extremely successful season.

This competition will continue this year and the Swimming Club wants interested people to join the ranks.

Competition is due to start either on 9 or 16 October and will continue through finals.

A game occupies only 15 min on a Wednesday night and is good relaxation from the grind of swotting.

Knowledge of the rules is not necessary although it is advisable to pick up a few basic facts before the season is under way.

Games are played at Thorndon baths.

Women's water polo will be played at Easter Tournament at Canterbury next year for the first time.

Any girl interested is asked to contact Pru Brock, ph. 27-355 or Carol Quirke, Upper Hutt, ph. 82-528.

For other swimming information contact Paul Kent, ph. 18-951 or Robbie Walker. ph. 76-098.
