Baboo Gelato

Our Headline Water Polo Sponsor award winning Baboo Gelato. Set up in 2015 by Annie Hanbury, a trained gelatiere, who wanted to combine her passion for making seriously good ice cream with the glut of fabulous ripe fruit on her Dorset doorstep. We think she’s succeeded and put the magic back into ice cream!

Yawl Spring will be supplying their local bottled water to both our swimmers and water polo entrants. The water continues to be bottled at the original source in the Lym Valley where it emerges after passing through deep layers of Greensand, providing a natural filter that purifies and enriches the water with minerals.

Dorset’s own Moores Biscuits are very kindly supplying our swimmers and volunteers with their delicious biscuits after their swim, as well as a raffle prize!
