Sports: Water polo is my main sport, I’m captain of the Spalding team, in our last competitive year (pre covid) we won the Hertfordshire league. I’ve played in the National league for Bedford and hoping to play for Lincolnshire next year when we start again from Covid.

Other than that anything really, I play Badminton at school, when the new 3G pitch is ready I’ll play staff football.

The sportier I can be the better.
