​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.

The club competes in BUCS throughout the year and with both men's and women's squads overall we have approximately 60 members. Two years running we have been close to a promotion and this year as a club we are more determined than ever. 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. 

Training frequency

We train five days per week, with additional swimming, running, or gym sessions also undertaken by most members.

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.
