Welcome to Northampton Water Polo Club
We are a fun and relaxed club, affiliated to the Amateur Swimming Association, with an emphasis on introducing our sport to, and catering for, as many people that are willing to give it a go. Our members range from 6 - 70+ years old, girls, boys, ladies and men with skills from complete novice to ex-international.
We have access to the recently completed pool complex at Northampton School for Boys. This is a purpose built centre, providing a flexible training environment and excellent facilities. The pool has a moveable bottom, so we can cater for younger players that still need the security of the floor to stand on, but also host senior league games in an all deep pitch. There is also an improved area for spectators.
For those that wish to participate, we play friendly and competitive matches against other local clubs. There is a thriving tournament schedule for the U15's and new leagues for the U16 and ladies teams. Our senior men compete in the East Midlands, Midlands and Hertfordshire leagues. As a result the entire club is kept busy all year round.
For junior members of the club, we are proud to support the Duke of Edinburgh's Award scheme. Details of the assessment criteria can be found on the About Us page. Also, for those GCSE and A level students taking PE, and choosing Water Polo as one of their nominated sports, we are happy to provide support and assessments. Please talk to the coaches if you would like any further details about either of these.
Details of our training times, membership fees and contact details can be found on the About Us page. Please feel free to email or call with any questions that you may have.
