''Council reiterates that its decision to close the pool was based upon safety issues and any operational budget savings are incidental.'' Wests has about 140 members with teams ranging from under- 14s to under-18s in the juniors and from sixth grade to first grade in the seniors. Olympian Ritchie Campbell is a member. Mr de Gail said having no home ground last season had already cost Wests who were the 2008 Australian National League champions but slipped to eighth last year. ''Last season we played games in the opponents' pools when they could accommodate us and travelled to Parramatta, Woy Woy, Cronulla and University of NSW for the balance,'' he said. And while Ashfield Council allowed them to use the 50m pool for training ''it was ridicu- lous because the players could stand'', Mr de Gail said. He said other pools in the area were being used by other water polo clubs. Now the club is worried their good players will go elsewhere and they will lose sponsorship. ''Our club members are dis- tressed,'' he said. ''Some of these guys have been playing at Ashfield for 45 years and know that it is the end for them if the club folds. ''The club and the water polo community feel terribly let down by Ashfield Council and are determined to fight this and do what is right for our young people.'' The council spokeswoman said Wests would be consulted in the feasibility study the coun- cil was conducting on proposed redevelopment options for the future of the aquatic centre. ''Council's mayor and general manager recently met with Wests Water Polo and assured them Ashfield Council is specifically considering the club's needs in any future plans for redevelopment, and sees Wests Water Polo as having a long-term future at the Ashfield Aquatic Centre,'' she said. ''Council has been made aware of the club's interim needs and will do our best to accommodate these during any future redevelopment.''
