Swimming & water polo

If you like getting into the pool and splashing about, GUSWPC is the club for you.

Training

swimming

The club caters for all standards from beginners at water polo to experienced competitive swimmers.

If competition is not really your thing, do not fear as we pride ourselves on being a social club too. Swimming is the best exercise known to man. Our training session allow all members to tailor swimming training to their own needs.

You can train once a week or five times a week including elite sessions. It is the perfect way to keep those beer bellies at bay.

If you’re competent in the pool but no Michael Phelps why not try out another water-based sport? Water polo provides the perfect opportunity. It is a fun way to test your stamina and combine different disciplines of swimming, communication, strength and teamwork. It is known to be a brutal game but it involves great skill to get that winning goal. The majority of players who join are novices to the sport, but after giving it a go get hooked on the fast pace and tactics involved during matches.

Competing

Both swimming and water polo teams compete on a regular basis throughout both terms, battling it out at home and away matches. If you do not want to compete, we always welcome supporters to all our home matches and after at a social event.

We also take part in other major competitions such as British Universities Championships, Stirling Sprints and the Scottish University Swimming and Water Polo Championships! Our trophy cabinet is never empty and can boast winning 'Team of the Year' at the annual GUSA Ball in previous years.
