Oxford Waterpolo Club is an established club in Oxford.

The club has a senior mens and senior ladies team and has weekly training sessions at Radley College just south of Oxford.   Our regular training slot is Mondays 8.30 pm to 10.00 or 10.30 pm.

Currently we do not have a junior side so are restricted to club members 18 and older.


The mens team play in Division 2 of the Midlands League and also participates in the Southern Counties league.


The ladies team has been playing in the  the London League since 2009 but are currently looking to strengthen the squad.  Every first Monday of the month is an open invitation night for new ladies to join.


Both sides take part in friendly matches, tournaments and the annual Town vs Gown match vs Oxford University.


See Club Details page for joining Oxford Water polo or arranging matches.
