Swimming

We offer 1-2 swimming sessions a week currently for our swimmers and we are looking at expanding the number of sessions.

We welcome swimmers of all abilities, so long as you can pass the water proficiency test set out by the SU! For those competitive swimmers, we have close ties with local swimming clubs and can get you in touch to help offer additional training.

Normally we would compete in BUCS short course and long course however, at this current time there isn’t a plan in place to hold BUCS swimming. We are looking into different ways we could compete such as local swimming leagues but we can update our members as we find out more!

 

Water Polo

Water polo is open to everyone who wants to try this fast-paced team sport!

Water polo offers 2-3 training sessions a week for both men’s and women’s teams! There’s an option for 1st team players to attend extra sessions at either Bristol central who have high performing men’s and women’s teams in the British Water Polo League. Come along and meet the team at one of our free taster sessions that will be announced soon on our social media!

SOCIALS

Due to COVID, the way that we do socials is going to be different from that of previous years.

We know that going out and socializing with the team is an important part of the university. That is why we are going to be planning events that so that we can all head out and have a good time whilst making sure that we are all safe and following government and university guidelines.

We want to make it clear that yours and everyone else's safety is at the top of our priority and we are going to be doing as much as possible to make sure that everyone is safe.
