Training sessions are currently paused in accordance with Government guidelines.
We have resumed restricted training sessions for our members in accordance with Swim England and Mountbatten guidelines.

We have returned to normal training and the opportunity for free trials. Please use the form below to register your interest and we’ll be in touch about details.

To encourage new members we offer free sessions over a three week trial period so you can try out the sport and get a feel for our club.

We welcome anyone who is aged 10+ who is comfortable in deep water – the pool we train in is 2┬ámetres deep(!).. just fill out the form below.

We know there can be interest from those younger than 10 and from March 2022 there will be external sessions on Saturdays mornings (9am – 9:40am) with one of our coaches at MBC. Suitable for swimmers around stage 7.

Ask for further details here – thanks.

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 (pool b) – 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.

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.

Where / When

Trials are incorporated into our normal Thursday training sessions which are held at the Mountbatten Centre (Alex Way, Portsmouth PO2 9QA, map) – check out session times here.
