Water Polo

Our vision is to enable student athletes to excel in the pool and in the classroom #EvertoExcel

University of St Andrews Water Polo Club

The Water Polo Club runs activities throughout the week, with coaching and competition to suit any ambition, allowing everyone the chance to enjoy water polo all year round and develop their ability.

Our athletes come to St Andrews from all over the world, bringing with them different backgrounds, experiences and skill sets, creating a very inclusive and close-knit club, where our newest members are quickly integrated and lifelong friendships are formed.

The women’s performance squad competes in the British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) Premier League and are one of the University’s top performing teams, having won the national championship in 2019 and 2022.
