About the Club

The University of Manchester has two full teams for both mens and womens, catered to those who want to play competitively or recreationally. Each team competes in an individual BUCS league and we also enter one mens and one womens team for the UPolo league. We train three times a week, with each session expertly tailored by our coaches to suit the needs of those who want to play competitively or those who are just starting out in the game. We also play local teams and host tournaments for local schools, in order to meet and make links with a variety of people. Alongside this, we are dedicated to fundraising events, such as our recent swim in the Salford Quays or the Great Manchester Run.

Club Philosophy

The University of Manchester's water polo society is fully commited to creating a friendly and open atmosphere in which players of all abilities are warmly welcommed. We pride ourselves on our ability to accommodate to all standards and provide everyone with a positive experience through the deliverance of carefully tailored training sessions both for competitive and recreational players. Alongside this, we ensure that all members gain a well rounded experience of being part of a university sports club through the organisation of enjoyable socials and fundraising activities. We are also dedicated to building a strong relationship with the community around us, through LGBT+ inclusivity, fundraising events and building links with local schools.
