 About Devonport Water Polo


Water Polo is an incredibly physical sport and is regarded as one of the most demanding of all team games. It is a fast-paced sport played by two teams in a swimming pool. There are goals at each end of the pool and, similar to other sports such as football, the winner of the game is the team that scores the most goals by getting the ball between the posts.

Each team is allowed to have seven players in the water at any one time (six 'out-field' players and a goalkeeper). Other than the goalkeeper, you will see the other players moving continuously around the pool.

Water Polo is a thriving facet of our club. We compete at Regional and County level and currently run the following teams:

Minis     Under 13     Under 15      Under 17     Men     Ladies

All of our teams up to Under 17 are unisex teams.

Our training times are as follows:

Wednesday 6.45-8.00pm - Mini Water Polo
Wednesday 6.45-10.00pm - Water Polo training
Saturday 8.45-9.45am - Mini Water Polo
Sunday 3.00-7.00pm - Water Polo training and matches.
Training sessions are led by our qualified staff at the Life Centre, Plymouth.

Alternatively you can come to the Life Centre at any of the above times.

 Mini Water Polo

Mini Water Polo on Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings at the Life Centre, Plymouth, for boys and girls typically of primary school age.

Mini Water Polo is a smaller, more basic version of Water Polo. Young players are taught the fundamentals of the full game by our qualified teachers and coaches. We believe this is a great way for a child to build confidence in the water while swimming, being part of a team, playing games, having fun, making friends and keeping fit and active.
