2023/24 Roundups

Men’s Water Polo Captain, Angus Coleman:

Firstly, this year has been phenomenal, and I wanted to thank everyone for the massive support whether that was on poolside, in the water or on the barmy bus. I was always pleasantly surprised by the number of people putting themselves forward for games, with many freshers making it to the first team due to their enthusiasm and dedication to training.

This year due to the incredible support from my vice-captain Luca Hayles and sheer number of dedicated players, we were able to form a formidable second team and allow those devoting their time to the club to get the most out of their year with us. This is evident in their victory against sides such as Aston! We hope to keep this going for future years with the end goal of entering a second team to the BUCS league and I would like to thank all universities who travelled and hosted this year’s development friendlies.

Despite a slightly rocky start to the BUCS season, having lost majority of our games in semester one we went on to be undefeated in all games played in semester two. Most importantly winning the BUCS National Trophy, however we didn’t stop there, the mighty Leeds went on to win the Christie cup on the same day. This must be my personal highlight of my time playing water polo in Leeds and I am so incredibly proud of our performance that day, good shift lads!

Varsity came with much-anticipation for a top performance from the boys in green, with it being called the most important fixture of the year we did not let the side down. On top of all this, there have been tons of amazing moments and events throughout the year such as the alumni big weekend organised by Jamie Price and charity match arranged by Erin Donnelly to name a couple.

Despite being on placement, I know that next season with Marcus as captain and Edi as vice will be equally as amazing and I hope to head to Leeds next year to meet all the new faces and join the fun once again!

Women’s Water Polo Player of the year, Rachel Malik :

The Women's first team had a strong seasons, finishing second in the women's northern tier 1 BUCS league. The team won 6, drew 2 and lost 2 matches within this league. The team also advanced through the BUCS National Trophy tournament narrowly missing out on reaching the semi-finals. The team was successful in winning the Christie Cup as well as the Varsity match versus Leeds Beckett. The team also participated in various charity events such as a match raising money for breast cancer research, and a charity swim gala where we beat the swimmers! Other fun events included a second team match versus the swimmers, many socials and team bonding! 


We had a great season and hope to improve even more next year!


2023/24 Roundups


Performance Captain, Kirstin Harvey:

Overall this year we have seen numerous successes both for the whole team and for individuals within the team. At both BUCS long and short course, the women's, men's and mixed relay teams made it to their respective finals, consistently placing high. At BUCS Teams, Leeds A placed 6th in the Championship Conference A and Leeds B placed 11th in the Trophy Conference A. Additionally, at varsity, Leeds Men’s Team took victory, and Leeds Woman’s narrowly missed out by 3 points. At Duel in the Pool and Christie Cup, Leeds came home victorious. Individually, multiple University records were broken and four of our swimmers collected awards at the sports colours awards.

 Competition Captains, Ailsa Batley & Thomas Johnson:

With over 60 members, Competition squad has had an incredible season this year. There has been some amazing swims, pbs achieved and overall a great attendance at competitions. This year, comp managed to secure a place in the BUSL A final, achieving 11th place out of all universities across the country. A very impressive feat, especially since comp has never made it to the A final before.


During the year, we also had 7 swimmers compete at the short course BUCS, 3 of which then later got moved up to performance. So a big well done to Abz, Katherine and Amy.


TJ and I have absolutely loved being captains for comp this year and we wish the future captains, Molly and Peely, the best of luck for next year.
