Welcome to UWA City Beach Water Polo Club!
UWA City Beach is one of the largest water polo clubs in Australia. With two generations of players, we have over 60 water polo teams competing in competitions from Club run Flippa Ball through to Water Polo Western Australia State League Juniors, Seniors, Masters and Premier League competitions.
Opportunities are available for social players through to those chasing elite playing opportunities.
Our very popular Friday night Flippaball program for children in school years 2-6 commences in October each year, and runs through Term 4 & Term 1 respectively. Registrations open in August. The emphasis is on participation and fun and with over 250 children playing each Friday evening make sure you get your registration in early.
The Saturday District Schools Competition sees children in school years 5-9 competing in a graded competition and further developing their aquatic skills and game knowledge. Approximately 24 local school based teams play in this competition that commences in Term 4 each year.
Junior State League and National Championships
Our State League Junior Boys and Girls (U14, U16, U18) love their Monday nights at HBF Stadium and also compete at the National Club Championships against clubs from all across Australia. In 2017, we won bronze at the Under 14 boys Champs and silver at the Under 18 Boys Champs. In 2016 we were the Under U14, U16 and U18 Boys title holders. To date, we are the only Club in Australia to hold this record.
Senior State League
We also took out the Men’s Premier League Flag and Division 3 Men’s flag in the State League 2016/17 season.
Our Senior players enjoy training together on the weekend and stopping in at the Polo Bear Cafe for refreshments post game and our Masters are planning for the FINA World Masters Tournament in Hungary in August 2017.
We have a number of junior players in Australian squads. Current member George Ford (originally from Dolphins) is our first Olympian. Andrew Ford and Tim Putt are also current members of the national Australian Sharks team.
