Waterpolo


Welcome to the homepage of the University of Chester Waterpolo.

All Together Wetter!

Waterpolo is a competitive seven-a-side game whereby players aim to get the ball into the opponent’s goal to get points! We play in the University pool and compete in other university pools nationwide!

We have a girls and a boys’ team and are looking for loads of new players to join the Waterpolo family! We will be entering the BUCs league again this year after our success last year! It is a really fun way to get fit and learn lots of new skills!

This year water polo have SMASHED their fundraising target by over 125%. To name a few, we have climbed Snowdon, held charity matches for movember and text santa, hosted rock and roll bingo in the SU, participated in the Resolution 10k run, as well as supporting a local swim school helping the children to swim various distances- raising close to £1.5k for various charities.

This year water polo have doubled their members from the previous years, providing a welcoming environment for both experienced competitive players, and beginners that wanted to try something new. We have developed from a group of people playing with a ball in the pool with very few matches to train for, to a competitive team that trains hard, and not only plays matches but wins them too! We have had successes for both the men’s team and the women’s team and even managed to win a medal in the BUCS Cup final.

As soon as you join you will feel like part of the family with our amazing Sport Social nights out and our exciting team bonding activities planned for this year! There will also be the opportunity to be part of extra fundraising activities outside of training sessions and mix with other societies.

If you’ve never played before don’t be afraid to come have a go! Come and join our largest Waterpolo team yet! Look forward to seeing you soon!
