Training

Training

New players are always welcome, all that we ask is that you can at least swim a couple of lengths.

The training session will focus on fitness, polo skills, technique, and above all fun. All training is fully coached.

The main session lasts 90 minutes, we start with a swim warm up, then on to water polo skills. All sessions end in match practice.

If you’re new starter or a little unfit, you’re still more than welcome to come down. The swim warm-up is divided so you will be with people of the same ability; so whether it’s your first time or you have played before we can cater for you. Remember you can always take a breather.

Just bring yourself, your swimwear and a towel.
