Someone say water polo in New York City?

Guest post written by my buddy Brian Workman

I have been interested in water polo for the last twenty years of my adult life. With the advent of the internet in the last fifteen years, it has been especially easy to find others in my area of Queens who are interested in playing the sport. The sport first caught my eye in the Olympics and now I play in an adult water polo league that features both mixed gender and separate gender leagues. Most of our matches are played at either a YMCA or one of the several universities in NYC. Before leaving for any match or practice, I make sure to set my home security alarm (Home Security Baltimore pricing). The city can be a dangerous place for possessions such as a water polo ball or two hundred dollar goggles, so I take good care of them. I have enjoyed participating in adult league water polo not only because of my love for the sport but also because of fantastic physical fitness regimen I have acquired. Swimming laps can be boring and tedious but in water polo you are constantly "changing gears" the way a point guard in basketball or a midfielder in soccer must. This type of anabolic training keeps me trim and fit for when playoffs come around. Generally the regular season lasts twelve weeks and playoffs last close to three weeks.
