Water Polo in the East Midlands
Welcome to the home of water polo in the East Midlands. Water polo is a fast-paced sport played by two teams in a swimming pool and requires a high level of stamina and fitness.
The game involves throwing a ball around your team and shooting to score in a net, guarded by a goalkeeper, while the other team will try to take the ball from you. A player can cover up to 3km in one game!

Senior water polo matches involve teams of seven players starting in the water, competing in four quarters of eight minutes. However, because the clock is stopped when the ball is not in play, the average quarter lasts around 12 minutes.
