Swim England North West are pleased to announce a Question and Answer Session with Theo Nousis, Izzy Howe, Katie Hesketh and Addison Brown on Saturday 10th April 2021 starting at 10.30am.
Katie has been a member of the GB women senior team since 2012 and has competed at European and World Championships. She was a part of the Gold medal winning team at the 2014 Commonwealth Games, and captained the GB women at the World University Games in Taipei in 2016.

Addison started his water polo career at 12 with Biddulph ASAWC and this quickly led to Paragon WPC in his hometown of Stoke-on-Trent. Addison then joined the North West RTC’s, which is where he gained the ambitions for competing at the highest levels possible. Addison worked his way to the fringes of the 91/92 GB squad whilst doing additional training at his longstanding club City of Manchester. As the competition increased I have competed in all division of the national league and played City of Manchester and most recently City of Sheffield at the British Champs. He have always loved local league playing for Paragon in the midlands league, Warrington in the Liverpool and District and now his home club the mighty Tyldesley in Manchester and district. In 2017, Addison was extremely lucky and proud to be selected for GB in the EU nations finishing 3rd and then the World Student Games in which GB finished an outstanding 8th in the world. Throughout this time Addison has also been fortunate enough to help coach local, regional and national teams.
Theo is Head Coach at City of Manchester WPC and also a coach at St Ambrose College. He first started playing Water Polo at the age of 17 at his local club in Greece. Theo then moved to London to study Biochemistry before moving to Manchester for a PhD, where he then joined City of Manchester WPC. At the age of 22, Theory started training as a Goal Keeper, analysing the position and technique through watching water polo games online. This the led him to becoming the GB Women’s Goal Keeper coach. That same year, Theo signed a professional contract in Greece. In 2012, Theo returned to City of Manchester WPC and have continued to develop his coaching career through hard word and continuous study of the game.
Aside from playing for City of Manchester, Izzy continues to be part of the GB women’s senior squad since it was reformed in 2017, she has previously played professionally abroad in Italy and completed for GB at Junior European and World Championships.
