Sheffield University Swimming and Water Polo Club (SUSWPC)
• Applied to the Alumni Foundation in February 2012
• Awarded £1125
SUSWPC is the fifth biggest sports club within the University, having over 115 members in the year 2013/14. The team compete in many local, regional and national competitions. The team were in need of new equipment to help maintain and advance their success in competitions.
The Alumni Foundation made a contribution of £1225 to go towards a vital piece of equipment, a shot clock.
A shot clock is used to quicken the pace of game by restricting an offensive play to 30 seconds.
The team reported that having this shot clock not only meant that the Water Polo games ran more smoothly, it also enabled them to abide by BUCS guidelines whilst competing in Water polo Competitions.
