Introduction to Polo
Coventry Waterpolo has been a well-established club in the city for many years. Originally playing from Livingston Road Baths and then playing from Coventry Sports Centre in more recent years. The teams have been a valued part of Coventry Swimming Club and the Amateur Swimming Association throughout.
Waterpolo is a full contact team water sport. Opposing teams spend four quarters trying to score in their opponent’s goal. The sport originated in Scotland in the late 19th century as a form of ‘Water Rugby’
Coventry currently have both Men’s and Women’s teams competing in the top tiers of Midland Leagues.
The Women also compete at the country’s highest level – The National League aka. The British Championships. They are currently ranked within the top 3.
Throughout the years, the club has produced many international players, competing not only for the home nations, but representing countries from around the globe.
They currently have several players earning regular caps for their country. These range from junior level all the way through to masters.
Unfortunately Junior Waterpolo was suspended last year due to lack of players. They are currently resurrecting the junior teams, hoping to compete in 2017 events.
Confident swimmers between the ages 11 -16 are invited to join the upcoming Waterpolo workshops where current players will introduce them to this enjoyable, physical and rewarding sport.
Workshops will be running throughout October and November. Full details are available on the COCSC and Wasps websites.
