Free Trial Session
To encourage new members we offer a FREE Trial Session so you can try out the sport and get a feel for our club. Come along to the appropriate session above and have a go! Please note the pool we train in is 2 metres deep – be sure you’re comfortable in deep water! If you would like to have a chat first – please get in touch.
Your First Training Session?
When you enter the Mountbatten Centre please let reception know you are there for water polo and they will let you through. Get changed and come on to poolside – down the scoreboard end – if Trevor Jones (Chairman & Coach) is not yet there, other club members will be around to chat with.
During a trial session you will get a chance to see what is involved in various aspects of training and game play and you’ll get a good idea of your level of (water polo) fitness.
Training Session Breakdown
Our training sessions are usually broken into three sections:
- General warm up.
- Tactics / playing techniques and water skills.
- A friendly game.
The sport requires a combination of swimming ability, and agility in the water. These will build over time but if you have any concerns about your level of fitness, please Contact us.
What To Bring
All you need is appropriate swimwear together with bags of energy and enthusiasm!
The club provides the water polo goals, hats and balls during training. In addition, we recommend that you bring a pair of goggles to wear during the general warm up session.
