- Monday 23rd March - Cancelled
- Monday 30th March - No pool session
- Monday 6th April - No pool session
- Monday 13th April - No pool session
- Monday 20th April - TBC
- Monday 27th April - TBC
As of yet, we've not heard if the annual Tiger Boat Race will go ahead or the Kendal Cumbria Tournament once we know more we'll re-evaluate and keep you posted.

For summer 2016, we had a trial at Ullswater Yacht Club, which proved to be an excellent venue. We will be there for the foreseeable future, from May bank holiday through to start of September. The outdoor pitch fits perfectly between the yacht club jetties and our floating goals tie on to the jetties easily. We are also looking into an alternate place for the pitch so we can run tournaments. The water is clean and the air is fresh!! All equipment is provided. Personal equipment brought to club sessions must be 'polo legal', for safety reasons. Some folk are training there over the winter as well. See Jack, Dan, Luke or Katie if you want to join them.
