On behalf of the Committee of PZ SA&WPC I would like to thank all of the officials, coaches and volunteers who have helped to run a very successful Club Championships 2018. The last two weeks has seen some amazing swimming by our fantastic young members, all of whom are a credit to the club.

Without your help and support this event would not be possible, so thank you once again.

Penzance water polo recently played hosts to Devonport, in an under 15 and under 18 mixed teams.
The visitors won both games narrowly 11-5 and 12-11. The matches were very exciting, and both Penzance teams provided strong opposition to the vastly more experienced Devonians.

Dear Members

On the evening of Thursday 14th June between 5pm and 9pm the owner of a white Nissan X Trail had her vehicle hit in the leisure centre car park. The vehicle had been parked in the front row of parking spaces opposite the football field facing the leisure centre.

During this time the owner, had been volunteering at the club championships.
The person responsible for hitting the vehicle did not report it but did leave some flowers on the windscreen! 

If anyone witnessed this incident or has any information please contact
Sam Rixon, Club Secretary  pzsa.secretary@gmail.com or inform a member of staff at the leisure.

 Liam and Ross will both lead a 2 hour, high level technique session in the pool followed by a classroom talk covering their swimming career, their journey to success (both in the pool and school) and how this has lead to their work with 2 of the biggest companies in world swimming.
