CHILDREN in Martlesham enjoyed their first ever session of mini polo last week.

An introduction session for 14 players, as well as coaches, was delivered at the Beacon Hill Pool in which a safety briefing was given to the players.

After being fitted out with protective headwear, the session began with gentle warm up practices, which also helped to break the ice as several children did not know anyone else in the pool.

Gradually, the pace began to build and two small teams, the blues and the whites, were passing the ball around amongst their own team mates.

The session ended with a match which saw five fiercely contested minutes each way under the watchful eye of referee Jon Elmer.

The youngsters now eagerly anticipate a re-match tomorrow night.
