Ranked 10th nationally, our Water Polo teams compete in the BUCS premier league.
- Both teams finished 5th in their league 2014/15
- Women's team BUCS Trophy Champions 2013/14
Imperial Water Polo sits as part of the Swim & Water Polo club and we currently have two teams playing in the British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) leagues, one Men’s and one Women’s. Both teams compete in the highest league nationally, BUCS Premier South and are ranked 10th nationally for the sport, earning 102 BUCS Points at the end of the 2014/15 season.
Imperial Water Polo are now a familiar face at the business end of national competitions and with many of the current quad on long degrees, the future is very optimistic for both squads to be Championship contenders over the next few seasons”
