MORE than 40 peo­ple have taken up the of­fer to try a new sport dur­ing ses­sions at Cock­burn ARC.

The Cock­burn Wa­ter Polo Club, which timed its launch to co­in­cide with the open­ing of the ARC, got un­der­way with great num­bers at­tend­ing two free ses­sions.

Club pres­i­dent Natalie Turner said it was a won­der­ful turnout.

“We man­aged to play matches both days and in­tro­duced a new game to the peo­ple of Cock­burn,” she said.

“There was a mix of younger and older peo­ple and we hope to nur­ture ev­ery­one who turns up, whether they have played be­fore or not.

“There is even talk of Cock­burn en­ter­ing some senior teams in the Perth com­pe­ti­tion this sum­mer, while our main aim is to start a ju­nior com­pe­ti­tion at Cock­burn ARC for both boys and girls.”

More than 40 peo­ple took part in wa­ter polo ses­sions run by the new Cock­burn Wa­ter Polo Club.
