Our swimming team will compete in the BUCS and BUSL leagues:

• BUCS short-course championships in first term (November 2023).
These take place over a weekend so we get to have a few nights away and some great socials while there too!
• BUSL - newly formed British University Swimming League (BUSL) which runs more local and regular swimming galas!

Water Polo:
Our waterpolo teams will have a variety of games with different universities and welcome all abilities from complete beginners 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. To get more information, speak with our President - Levan.
