Following the historical success of English players as members of the Great Britain Men’s water polo teams that dominated international water polo in the first six Olympic games, the England Senior Men’s team has achieved considerable success in modern international competition. In 2002, the England Senior Men’s team won the bronze medal in the Commonwealth Water Polo Tournament and the England Senior Men’s team then won the gold medal in the Commonwealth Water Polo Tournament in 2014, beating Malta 16-9 in their final match.
To great excitement the Water Polo Management Group restarted a competitive England Senior Men’s program at the beginning of 2017.

Ian Elliot, Chair of the England Water Polo Management Group, has provided us with this update today. Ian advises, “When England Water Polo was informed 10 days ago that Malta was unable to hold the Commonwealth Water Polo Competition, we took it upon ourselves to look seriously to try and find an alternative venue. We engaged with our partners in Manchester to review the logistics and costs involved in hosting such a significant event.
