Women’s Polo

Edin561445_1531735220461032_5156147946663943545_nburgh University attracts a number of talented female water polo players each year. A number of our playe
rs have been part of Scotland and GB junior and senior squads or have previously played for teams participating in BWPL. The team is
coached by Derek Docherty who has experience of both playing and coaching at international level. He is assisted by commonwealth championships bronze medalist, Ed Grundy. The 1st team have 3 polo sessions per week plus matches and swimming for fitness. We are also lucky enough to be supported by the university’s TPP programme providing an additional circuits session and weight’s session every week. The team play together regularly in both BUCS premier league matches and Scottish National League matches against Scottish club sides. However, we cater for all abilities at Edinburgh and anyone who is a strong swimmer but does not have previous water polo experience can join EUSWPC. Our women’s 2nd team train twice per week and compete against other SSS teams. There is also the opportunity for talented 2nd team players to progress onto the 1sts squad.
