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.

October has been yet another topsy-turvy month with rules about training changing regularly depending on which tier your club is in, and now we are facing another country-wide lockdown starting on Guy Fawkes night which will close pools and suspend polo (at least indoors!) for 4 weeks. As ever, the water polo community has shown great spirit and determination to train wherever possible and it is a great credit to all the coaches and helpers that so many clubs have been able to offer covid-secure training facilities which are so important to keeping the sport alive.
