Aquatics


Key Information

Aquatics is one of our larger sports, comprising both of Swimming and Water Polo.

Our Aquatics programme has a league competition, a Championships and a National Squad who will compete across the UK. We have two men’s and women’s leagues catering for both performance athletes and students looking to develop in the sport.

All of the leagues are set-up so that teams play their opponents home and away on Wednesday afternoons. The Championships take place towards the end of the league season with Swimming and Water Polo each having their own event.
