As the sea­son draws closer, Hed­land Wa­ter Polo As­so­ci­a­tion will host a have-a-try night to en­cour­age res­i­dents to get in­volved in the pop­u­lar wa­ter sport.

As­so­ci­a­tion pres­i­dent Brad Pawlenko said the night aimed to in­tro­duce Hed­land res­i­dents to the sport in a friendly and non-com­pet­i­tive way.

“It’s a free night with no pres­sure to join a team — it’s just to have a try and get peo­ple down to the pool,” he said.

“Any­one who has ever thought about play­ing but wasn’t sure are en­cour­aged to come down, try it out and see what it’s like.”

The have-a-try night will be held on Friday at Gratwick Aquatic Cen­tre, with Flip­per­ball be­gin­ning at 6pm and se­niors start­ing at 7pm.

Pawlenko said all res­i­dents needed to do was bring swimwear and a towel, with the as­so­ci­a­tion putting on a sausage siz­zle to re­fuel at­ten­dees after their dip in the pool.

“It doesn’t mat­ter what your skill level is — ev­ery­one is wel­come to come down, even if some just want to watch,” he said.

The wa­ter polo sea­son is set to be­gin on Friday, Oc­to­ber 20, with hopes for the com­pe­ti­tion to move to the South Hed­land Aquatic Cen­tre after the Christ­mas break if re­pairs are fin­ished by then.
