Metropolitan Police Swimming and Water Polo Club will be hosting the Police Sports UK National Swimming and Water Polo Championships on April 28, 2019
The Metropolitan Police Swimming and Water Polo Club is one of the largest competitive sports club within the Metropolitan Police Athletics Association. Counting around 50 swimmers and water polo players, our members compete regularly under the banner of the MPS at sporting events across the country.
In April 2019, the club will be hosting the Police Sports UK National Championships in Guildford. This event will bring together around 200 serving and retired police officers from across the UK; including PSNI, Police Scotland and the Garda.
The MPS traditionally put together very strong swimming and water polo teams, and last year our female relay teams won both the freestyle and medley relays; a feat not achieved in 18 years! As hosts of the PSUK Championships, the weekend will also be spent raising money for our chosen charity: JACK’s Pack.
JACK’s Pack is a charity very close to our hearts, and in May 2018, 5 of our members travelled to New York in order to participate in a half-marathon and other activities so as to raise money for this incredible charity.
The 2019 events are:
18 May – New York City Half Marathon. See photos from the 2018 event.
22 May – Jet Pull. See photos from the 2018 event.
