Swimming & Waterpolo


Welcome to the University of Aberdeen’s Swimming and Water Polo Club!

We pride ourselves on offering aquatic opportunities for all students to enjoy regardless of ability, and invite anyone of any skill level to come along and swim with us.

We are a two sport club and have many members who both swim and play water polo. This means that, despite being a club of more than 80 members, we're a close knit team. If you're looking to make some new friends at university, look no further than AUWSPC!

All of our sessions are flexible and our dedicated captains make sure to cater to all level of abilities. Whether you've been training for years or just picked up your cap and goggles, we're the club for you. Both swimming and water polo sessions are a great mix of technique and fitness to help you achieve your aquatic goals. Our swimmers compete in league matches, BUCS short + long course and SSS- there's something for everyone! Our polo players are just as busy with matches almost every week!

In addition, two dedicated social secretaries ensure you’ll have as much fun out of the water as you do at training! We host themed drinking and non-drinking socials at least every 3 weeks so there's plenty of time to break out your best dance moves!

 Swimming & Water Polo Membership:

  • £50 = full year
  • £20 = 1st semester only (due to a later uni start time this year)

     Membership prices are the same for both students and non-students. After purchasing a membership you'll need to sign our code of conduct (link below, login with your UoA email). Please send your signed code of conduct to swimpolo@abdn.ac.uk.


Both of these memberships give access to multiple weekly training sessions where team captains provide coaching and session plans in one of Scotland's best sporting facilities! Our membership also includes entry to BUCS leagues with matches happening every week (matches are currently suspended due to COVID restrictions) and the opportunity to compete all over Scotland. 

Members are welcome to attend any of the sessions below, regardless of their primary sport. Non-student members are also encouraged to join.
