Welcome to Spalding Water Polo
Spalding Water Polo is a fun and competitive team-group linked with Spalding Amateur Swimming Club, which was established in 1934. There is a junior club affiliated to the group called ‘South Holland Stingrays’, while senior teams (over 16 years old for competitive league fixtures) play in several water polo leagues, as well as invitation tournaments. Anyone is welcome to have a try and join in (please see link for club subs & rules) – the only requirement is that you need to be a competent swimmer. Although our league fixtures are currently just for men, we do have ladies joining us for mixed training sessions.
As well as enjoying our water polo, there is a strong social side within the group, with outings throughout the year and occasional fund-raising events for various causes. We always meet after training and home matches at our ‘club pub’, The Moorings (Commercial Road, Spalding PE11 2HD), where we enjoy some excellent beer and banter, as well as delicious food kindly provided by our hosts Steve & Jill. Their support is particularly appreciated for their legendary meals for both teams after a home fixture!
