Did you know that the AU Scuba Club has an Under Water Rugby (UWR) team, the White Pointers?
In exciting developments for the team, it has recently changed its training location to the Adelaide Aquatic Centre for the team's regular weekly training sessions. Moving into a 5m deep pool allows them to train new strategies and improve fitness. "We hope that these new training conditions will lead to a higher level of game play and bring greater success for the team in future competitions" says Angela Dodd (White Pointers sub-Committee Chair).
Other training, such as the women's team training and beginner courses, will continue to be held at the Thebarton Aquatic Centre.
They are grateful to both our ongoing and new hosts for providing these venues to continue to promote the sport and well being in our local community. The new venue does come at an increased cost to members, but, judging by the first session's turnout, it looks as though this won't deter players from attending.
