Water polo teams and governing bodies are working tirelessly to improve knowledge of the sport and encourage all ages and genders to enter the pool.

Before this I was a swimmer, but decided it wasn’t the sport for me as it lacked the action I was looking for.
In my opinion, not enough disinterested swimmers try water polo, it was one of the best decisions I ever made!
I am currently studying at Loughborough on a sports scholarship and have had the best time playing water polo here and I would encourage anyone considering coming here to play polo to do so!

I was previously a national swimmer and competed until I was 18.
However, after sustaining injuries in my knees and back I eventually stopped swim training altogether.
When I started at Loughborough I had been out of swim training for over a year and doubted I would make the entry times; so by my second year I took my friend from the polo team’s advice and trialed for Waterpolo.
