Northumbria’s Water polo club consists of 1x Men’s & 1x Women’s team who compete in weekly fixtures in BUCS.

Despite the high level of competition, the club are very friendly and welcoming and always keen to take on new members whether you have played the sport before or not. Based out of Sport Central’s 25m pool, the club have access to coached sessions throughout the week including use of the sauna and steam room. The sessions vary between predominantly water polo based & swim only.

On top of all the fun you will have in the pool, you will enjoy a variety of social events organised by the club making it the perfect opportunity to play the sport you love while having a great time and making new friends.
