Time Out London profiles London Orcas water polo club

From Time Out London:

'New year, new you' needn't mean joining a gym. There are other ways of keeping fit - swimming for instance, or taking up water polo. London's lesbian and swimming club Out To Swim will be 20 this year. Inspired by the swimming teams at the Gay Games in Vancouver in 1990, the club has gone from strength to strength, regularly competing at national and international competitions and expanding to include a synchronized swimming team as well as regularly competing in open water events. And they have their own water polo club, London Orca. Established in 2002, they compete in local London league and international competitions, and are currently looking to recruit new members. Gareth Johnson is the club's Finance Officer and goal keeper, and has been a member for the past eighteen months.

'We have an active squad of 60. Of course some are more active than others. We train twice a week and attendance ranges from 20 to 30 at each session. At the heart of the squad is our “A Team”, who are the players that compete in our London league matches. They run the training sessions and provide the coaching and development support for anyone new to the game. But at every training session we have players with a range of skills and experience, from first timers learning the ropes to experienced players that have been playing since school.'
