The Originals

The Originals team of 1965

Western Suburbs Amateur Water Polo Club was formed in 1965 by the amalgamation of Ashfield and Enfield Amateur Water Polo Clubs, with the main purpose entering First Division. This was accomplished after three successful seasons in Second Division. The 30 players who played in 1965 are listed below including the number of games they have played for the club.

At the recent 50th Anniversary dinner we were lucky enough to have 14 of the originals together for a group photo.
