About the UWA Torpedoes
Established in 1990 the UWA Torpedoes is the AWL (Australian Water Polo League) franchise of the very successful parent UWA Water Polo Club. The UWA Torpedoes Men’s team took the National title in the 2015/16 AWL season.
In 2010, the club enlisted a new coach, triple Olympian Andrei Kovalenko to our men’s team resulting in a huge improvement in the teams national standing culminating in the 2015/16 Men’s championship. Many of our male players have gained selection in national squads and have been awarded scholarships with the Western Australian Institute of Sport (WAIS).
The Women’s team has appointed a new coach in 2018 with the well-credentialed Vaughn Thomson, who has coached at both state and national level with great success. Vaughn’s focus is developing the current team with an expectation of making the medal playoffs this coming season.
The Australian Waterpolo League (AWL) is Australia’s premier domestic water polo competition – the water polo equivalent of the AFL!
The AWL has 10 representative clubs from across Australia, each club has one team for each gender. The AWL begun as the National Water Polo Men’s League back in 1990, with the women’s league introduced in 2004. In 2015 WPA introduced a licensing structure to the league to formalise the teams’ involvement, meaning all 10 clubs involved now hold a license to compete each year. In 2017, the name was changed from ‘National Water Polo League’ to ‘Australian Waterpolo League’.
