For the first time, we have a juror from Great Britain.
Representing the independent voice of water polo in England and Great Britain, and managed by Chris Dean, the Water Polo England site brings England and Great Britain water polo news, results and more. The site has 2 clear objectives, namely: 1) To act as a responsive and responsible water polo community archive and resource, maintaining an accessible database of all England and wider GBR water polo activity for the community, and 2) To provide communication within the community about all current and future water polo activity in England and GBR.
The Water Polo England site and its web managers are completely independent of Swim England, but are supportive of the efforts of Swim England and its Water Polo Management Group to bring leadership and strategic direction to water polo in England and Great Britain.
