Water Polo Yeovil Spartans

Water Polo Team
 
The Yeovil Spartans are affiliated to the swimming club and meet at their Sherborne training centre at the Oxley swimming pool.
 
The Yeovil Spartans is the brain child of two longtime waterpolo enthusiasts and players - Rachel Middlemast and Hannah Taylor.  Rachel, who is the Director of Sport at Westfield Academy has been playing at a high level for over 25 years.  Hannah, a local shiatsu practitioner, has participated in the sport in both the UK and Australia for over 30 years.  Both are on a mission to bring the game to the local area and spread the word about the many benefits of this exciting sport.
 
“We’re both passionate about getting waterpolo 'out there' and making it more accessible to all. It’s a great game, fostering teamwork, planning, tactics and strategy. It’s fast-paced and competitive.  Waterpolo is great for stamina and sprinting speed. It’s a Hiit (high intensity interval training) workout - but in the water. And it’s great fun!!”.
 
Club Chairman, John Dixon said “We are delighted to be incorporating a new waterpolo team, the Yeovil Spartans under the YDSC umbrella.  It is very exciting to be involved in its formation, which Hannah and Rachel will drive forward with much success I am sure.  Many of our swimmers are keen to try the game and we look forward to welcoming new members into this new arm of the club to participate in this new aquatic discipline.”
