Tomorrow night’s pool session will be polo. Anyone is welcome and we encourage people to give this disciple a go. The more the merrier :rofl:

To anyone that can make it, be at the shed for 9pm to get the required gear.

Put my name down. 14901153

This is the session plan:

This is a pretty good run down of the basic rules here.

Basic zoning with attackers in blue and defenders in red:

I'll explain it fully tonight but the broad strokes are the left and right defenders try and keep any attackers out to the side of the pitch where it's hard to shoot from. The central defender pushes the attackers out to the side for their left and right defenders to deal with. The red boat with the yellow arrow is the chaser, normally the fastest, who's job is to interfere with the attack plan and try and win the ball. The main idea of polo defence is hold your position. If everyone breaks and charges down the ball, the attacking team will just go around you and score. If anyone has any questions, ask away and I'll do my best to answer them.
