Dariusz had a long career as an international water polo player, having represented Poland for six years and appeared at 2 European Championships; as captain at the Varna 1990 European Junior Championships and then at the Senior European Championships in Athens 1991. After his playing career ended, Dariusz then moved into coaching and is now the head coach for London Polytechnic WPC and London Regional Coach.

The Club is now up and running with a training session every Tuesday between 18:00-19:00 at Mallinson Sport Centre, Bishopswood Rd, London, N6 4NY, with extra pool time available for further sessions as numbers increase.


If you live in North London and fancy trying water polo, or have played before and are looking for a club local to you which will provide you with the opportunity to become a really good player, we suggest you go along on any Tuesday evening and join in the fun.
