Fleetwood and District Water Polo Team was established in 2001 by a group of ex-swimmers who fancied a change from ploughing up and down the pool, since then the team has grown into one of the most competitive clubs in the area with an excellent team ethic and has a vibrant junior team.
The squad operates men’s & a ladies team plus a mixed junior team. The squad is managed to a competitive standard but there is an emphasis on both the fun and social elements of team sports.
The senior team is coached by James Myers & Tommy Hussey and participates in the North Lancs. Water Polo league, along with cup competitions around the country. The team entered in North Lancs. league is open to players over 16.
The junior team is coached by Steve Brown & James Myers and plays friendly & competitive matches against other junior teams around the North West. The junior team is open to both boys and girls from 8 – 16.
Both coaches hold water polo coaching qualifications and James is a current player within the senior team.
Training sessions are held at Fleetwood Leisure Centre on Tuesday (juniors) & Thursday (seniors & ladies) from 19:30 until 21:00.
If you want to give Water Polo a try all you don’t need any experience, all you need to be is a good swimmer. If you have any queries please come and see James or Steve on a Tuesday/Thursday night, new members are always welcomed.
