We are a highly competitive, social and friendly club who are always endeavouring to find new members to help us be the best club we can be. Due to this, we are proud to call ourselves the 2nd largest mixed sports club within the University. 


Both sports compete in the national British Universities and College Sport (BUCS) competition. We offer up to 8 sessions a week for swimmers and 4 for water polo players, whether they aim to compete at a high level or just to maintain their fitness. 


The club boasts a large social scene with weekly events for both competitive and social members after Wednesday water polo matches. We host a variety of other events throughout the year, including our annual tour to Croatia over the Easter break.


Our society goes beyond just sport in supporting a culture of
community. We promote our sports as a catalyst for facilitating friendships and creating contacts that last long after members’ studies – a core value behind university societies which we endeavour to achieve.
