The water polo club is one of the friendliest clubs in the university and caters for all ability of players, ranging from ex-national players right down to beginners who have never played before, so everyone’s welcome! Training is twice a week, developing the core basics of the game as well as detailed match tactics.
If you’ve never played the game before university is a brilliant way to get involved in a new sport without pressure being put on. So if you’re a keen swimmer and bored of swimming up and down all the time, give waterpolo a try, we promise you’ll have a good time, get fit and meet some cracking people along the way. So visit us at the Fresher’s Fayre or our Facebook page (below) to check training times, leave us a message and just come down to the pool for training!
The men’s team compete in 3 competitions and the women’s team in 2, as well as friendly matches being played throughout the year, ensuring plenty of opportunity for everyone to play. The men’s 1st team were promoted to BUCS division 1 in 2012 meaning high end competition for those looking to push themselves. The women’s team also compete in the top division in BUCS, but don’t let that put you off trying the sport out if you’re new, as squad rotation is applied for all other competitions meaning you’ll DEFINATELY get game time.
As is important to any Sports club, Nottingham Water polo offers a great social experience too, with socials every Wednesday. We attend the annual AU Ball every year as well as holding a big Christmas social for the club members at the end of the year! Though we are not the largest sports team in the AU in size, we are the largest consumers of Jagermeister, and our smaller size does mean that you will be made to feel instantly welcome and have some of the most banter-filled times at Uni with some of the best people you can meet. GUARANTEED!
Training is at the University pool at the following times-
Tuesday- 9:30-10:30 (pm)
Thursday- 7:30-9:30 (pm)
