Welcome to Manchester Sharks - Manchester's Gay & Lesbian Water Polo Club

It must be something in the water...

What makes a water polo player? Take the fitness of a swimmer mixed with the skill of a footballer and then add the power of a rugby player , that's a water polo player.


Have you got the balls?

We're always on the lookout for new players & supporters. It doesn't matter if you have experience or not, we'll show you the works.

The Manchester Sharks  are a team of gays and lesbians with a passion for water polo. The Sharks are about fun, fitness, friendship, international travel and goal scoring of course! We are based in Manchester and have a weekly training session. Compete in some of the world's largest sporting events. Play in a local league. Be a part of an essential part of the gay community in Manchester.


Our Weekly training session takes place at Miles Platting Pools, Varley Street, Manchester every Thursday at 6:45pm for a 7pm start.

No previous experience is necessary, open to men and women; just bring your swimwear and a towel.
