Eurogames Stockholm pre-game update

The Stingers are having a blast in Stockholm this week in the lead up to Water Polo games which start tonight at 6pm local time.  The week has been occupied with the team exploring the city and surrounds of beautiful Stockholm.   The opening ceremony on the 5th was a great opportunity to meet fellow Australian competitors and waterpolo teams from around the globe.  Thursday the 6th also saw a few of the stingers attend the inaugural welcome dinner hosted by the city of Stockholm, at the beautiful town hall.  We've been blown away by the beauty of the city so far and the friendly attitude of locals. Definitely a must for anyone looking to visit Scandinavia. 

We will keep you all updated later today with game results from the 3 matches scheduled. Depending on how he team goes we may be in the pool the following day as early as 8:30am, so a hectic schedule.  Till then stay tuned on social media for more updates.
