West Midlands Water Polo Players at FINA World Masters Championships

Women's masters team, English Roses, went to the FINA World Masters Water Polo Championships 2017 in Budapest

 

For the first time since they created the Women's Masters club in the UK, the English Roses entered two teams 45+ and 30+ for the international event. Elizabeth Palmer (Coventry) was in the 45+ team and Michaela Smith (Solihull), Hannah Hinton (City of Birmingham), Samantha Tubb (City of Birmingham), Victoria Haekins (Coventry) alongside Coaches Ian Elliot and Claire Walmsley (Coventry) were in the 30+ team. Both teams confronted teams from the USA, Canada, Colombia, Hungary, Italy, Germany and Czech.

Hungary is the home of Water Polo, so the venue, the atmosphere and the hospitality were incrediable and it was great to see huge crowds supporting the event. The 45+ team took a silver medal home. A fantastic acheivement for the team. Well done to all who competed!
