Our swimming team competes twice a year in the BUCS league: short-course championships in first term (19-21 November 2021) and long-course championships in second term (18-20 February 2022). These take place over a weekend so we get to have a few nights away and some great socials while there too! This year we are also taking part in the newly formed British University Swimming League (BUSL) which runs more local and regular swimming galas!
Our waterpolo teams have a variety of games with local universities and welcome all abilities from complete beginner to seasoned veteran. If you want even more waterpolo then why not look at playing with our affiliate club "Aston Men's" who have training on Thursday evenings.
