Swimming & Water Polo Sports Club

University of Warwick Swimming and Water Polo Club

Welcome to the University of Warwick Swimming and Water Polo Club (UWSWP)! We are by far the hottest club on campus. No matter your ability we cater for all and welcome everyone to give our sport(s) a try. Two sports in one club - we have everything for everyone from competitive swimming to our club team and our leading development team! If you want to get fit, faster or just meet genuinely nice people then our club is perfect for you. 

We provide a host of training, competitions and socials for a packed out calendar. The best part is if you want to try out Water Polo or Swimming you can do both under our membership and many members do both sports. We are led by a fantastic executive committee that runs the club, but also a highly experienced coaching team. Our club offers everybody the chance to compete in swimming or water polo with over five events across the academic year you are sure to be kept busy and competitive. Don't worry they are a good mix between competitive and fun races to become more experienced. Our highlights include Varsity, where we compete against Coventry University and have won for the past 30 years, our BUCS programme and our entries into BUSL. 

Training and competitions are not the only things you can get involved in here at UWSWP with regular socials, including frequent circling (you will know after you come to POP or School Dayz with us) and our annual domestic and foreign tours! Other highlights include charity events, inter sports club activities, our annual ball and much, much more!

WUFF (Our other name, can you guess what this stands for?) is a friendly, fun club with a big presence on campus. You make friends for life and we will always make you feel welcome, whether you’re a seasoned veteran or a brand-new fresher! Join today or ask us questions if you are interested in joining. 

Add our Google Calendar  (will be updated soon) to stay updated with all the upcoming events and socials.
