Sowetans encouraged to consider Water Polo sport!

Mkhabela, was speaking exclusively to this reporter, whilst putting his charges to pace during training in Soweto.

 He continued: “We need to conscientious our youngsters about the Water Polo, and demystify the thought that it is only played by other nations. We must engage and show them the benefits of this ‘beautiful sport’,” says Mkhabela.

The Soweto Water Polo is affiliated to the Central Gauteng Aquatics. It competes with top schools such as Tridents Florida, Pretoria Old Boys and Old Edwards in the men’s league, and according to the coach, they’re doing pretty well.

Currently, the team boasts 35 players from Jabavu, Senaone, Jabulani and Pimville.

The game is played with 7 players’ aside-inside the deep pool, using only one hand with only the goalkeeper allowed to be ambidextrous. The team that scores more goals wins.

“Next year will see us competing in the Indigo Water Polo tourney in Parktown, Joburg.

As a coach and Sowetans; we’re also proud that some of my team members have been selected for Provincial Games.

My objective is to win the league this season; and also complete my coaching degree,” commented Mkhabela.
