It all started when Geoff Masey delivered a workshop in Lisburn on how to introduce Mini Polo in the Learn to Swim Programme. Over the next 3 years, many children participated in taster sessions, introductory classes, and went on to compete in the mini leagues and to develop some serious skills. For the first time in the history of Lisburn City Swimming Club, we have full members training for the sport, as well as a development programme for young players of all abilities. Players are coached by Nathan Taylor and Charlie Campalani.
