July 21 – CATALAN ISLAND, AVALON – Thanks to help from the Harbor Department the City’s Recreation Department has the water polo nets are up and ready for summer play in the harbor off South Beach Residents and visitors alike can use the court at any time for free play. You can get a water polo ball from Browns Bikes. There is no fee, just leave a form of I.D. The Avalon Recreation Department hopes to see you in the water playing!.

The Recreation Department has had interest from mainland teams that want to come and practice in the harbor, and they wouldn’t be surprised to one day host a tournament on the island.

Aside from open play, the Recreation Department is looking forward to having some (loosely) organized practices and games, but as most things, it depends on the interest and response they get from the community. Anyone looking for more information contact Dave Hart 1-310-510-0220 ex 231.
