This is a shout out to all past and present Men's Water Polo players inviting them to attend our Thursday night training session from 9.00 - 10.30pm at the Mere's Leisure Centre, Grantham.
Grantham Water Polo Club will be applying to enter the Senior Mens 2017 Notts ASA Water Polo League and we are looking to increase the size of the Men's squad for entry into this large very competitive league.
Grantham Water Polo Club members playing for King's School have qualified for the ESSA under 13 National Finals to be held on Tuesday May 24th at Northampton School for Boys. Warm up 11.30am, first game 12.00am. Congratulations to all those involved.
King's School are in group A and will be playing Bolton School, Dulwich Prep School and Haberdashers' Aske's School.
Urgent! BWPL NEEDS MORE TABLE OFFICIALS! They don’t have to be people expected to turn out every other weekend in the season. But, if every club in the League made a commitment to produce just one qualified person, if only for occasional duties, one of our biggest administrative headaches would be solved.
The Barcelona International Water Polo Academy are running a summer camp at Bradfield College, Reading from 14th to 20th August 2016.
With Ciara Gibson, GB Olympic player and YURI COLET, Co-founder & Head Coach of BIWPA and Director at the Sóller Water Polo Club (Mallorca).

Congratulations to our newly qualified Level 1 coaches for completing their course.
Simon Walker, Sally Dunlop, Jared Wright, Adam Smith, Mille Stewart, Josh Peters, Caleb Mackay and Rose Bitowt. Well done we are very lucky as a club to have such dedicated volunteers.
Grantham Waterpolo Club would like to say a huge congratulations to Naya Patel who helped the England 1999 Women's team win a Bronze medal at the EU Nations Cup in Denmark. We are all very proud of Naya and the team.
The team won their final match against Malta with an impressive 11-6 win. (3-1, 3-3, 1-1, 4-1)

Water polo will be taking a deserved festive break. Our last session is Thursday 17th December pm returning on Tuesday 5th January 2016. I would like to wish all our players and their families a wonderful Christmas and a successful 2016
Christmas Waterpolo social fundraiser night unfortunately has to be cancelled,as I have only had two families say they are able to come, which is a real shame. The club is trying to raise money to pay for the electronic 30 second stop clocks, which costs £1200. This summer we raised over £340 towards it, with our Outrageous Games day, so have just under £860 to go. I have had several families offer to donate money towards them, as they can't come due to other commitments, which is extremely kind.
The 2015/16 BWPL kicked off last weekend 12/09/15 with a 32 match weekend event at Ponds Forge featuring Men's division 3,4 & 5 and Women's division 2.
