​Water Polo

Water Polo at Loughborough caters for all abilities. We encourage new students to come and try this amazing sport, you are guaranteed to have a great time.

Athletic Union Club

Water polo is a competitive sport played in the water between two teams. The game consists of four quarters, where the two teams attempt to score goals by throwing the ball into their opponent’s goal. Each team is made up of six field players and one goalkeeper.

Our teams compete in BUCS, U-POLO and SUWP throughout the year and we have approximately 50 members. Our men’s team and women’s team cater for all abilities, so do not hesitate to tag along to one of our taster sessions as we have space available for everyone.

We train five to six days per week, and additional swimming, running or gym sessions are also undertaken by most members. 

Hall Sport (IMS)

You can compete in water polo for your halls of residence in Intramural sport (IMS) in competitions throughout the year. It’s a great way to get involved in hall life and meet new people in a more social and less competitive environment.
