Great Britain

GBR Senior Men

For the first two decades of the 20th century, the Great Britain Men’s team was regarded as the best Water Polo team in the world. The Great Britain Senior Men’s team dominated the sport internationally, winning Olympic Gold medals in 1900, 1908, 1912, 1916, and 1920.

More recently, the Great Britain Senior Men’s team competed in the 2012 Olympic Games, placing 5th in their group. However, UK Sport funding for the Great Britain Senior teams was cut from £4.5 million to nil following the 2012 Olympic Games. As such, the Great Britain Senior Men’s team was in a period of stasis for 5 years with a lack of leadership or interest on the part of the NGB British Swimming.

However with the energy and commitment of a vounteer Management Group from 2015, the Great Britain Senior Men’s team was restarted in 2017 on a self-funded basis and the future now looks promising.
