This new sport in the Southern Cape is growing in popularity. York High School has 5 water polo teams. We compete in the local school league and always enjoy tours to other provinces. Annually we participate in the Open Water Chukka Festival held in the Knysna lagoon, the only event of its kind in Africa. We have numerous provincial representatives as well as teachers serving on the SWD management and umpiring bodies. Fitness, determination and team work is essential for success in this game. In the hot summer months water polo gives players the opportunity to be where everybody wants to be…in the pool!
