Water Polo

Water Polo in Swim England North West
Welcome, if you are reading this you have some interest in the sport of Water Polo. 

Water polo originated in England and Scotland was one of the original team sports at the first modern Olympic Games in 1900 with Great Britain winning the first four men’s Olympic gold medals in 1900, 1908, 1912 and 1920.

The sport combines speed and strength as well as teamwork and a high level of fitness – one outfield player can cover up to two miles in one game alone.

Around 15,000 people play water polo in the UK across all levels – why not add to that number by joining one of the many ASA-registered clubs in England?

Joining one of the many water polo clubs in England can be the first step towards getting into Swim England Talent Squads and means you can enter local, regional and national competitions.
