Swimming & Waterpolo

Welcome to AUSWPC – Aberdeen University’s Swimming and Water Polo Club!


Housed at Aberdeen Sports Village (ASV), one of the country’s finest sporting facilities, we provide up to 7 hours of swim training and 6 hours water polo per week – all for one singular membership price! You can come to as many or as few as you want, across one or both disciplines, to fit in with your own commitments!

As one of the larger clubs (over 100 members last year!) on campus, we provide a fun and friendly environment for a broad range of ability – from those who are just getting into the sport through to experienced, competitive athletes. If you want a relaxed environment to develop your swimming, this is the perfect place to do so!

(ASV requires all members are able to complete 50m of a recognisble stroke + tread water for 30s, due to the inherent risks of deep water – if you can’t yet swim, ASV has a excellent adult lessons – contact them directly)

Focused on competition? Our Connect programme provides a dedicated training plan to optimise for this. And for those at the top of the sport, we are linked with the UoA Performance Programme!

We enter swim teams into both the BUSL and SSS leagues, and travel down to Sheffield for BUCS short and long course – so there’s something for everyone! Similarly, we have both Men’s and Women’s Water Polo teams entered in the BUCS league – with a range of matches both home and away to hone your skills!


Apart from training, we also have a busy social calendar throughout the year – starting off with the famous white t-shirt night. With a range of quizzes, themed nights, karaoke, and maybe even some ceilidh dancing, the social calendar is not to be missed!


Not a student, but want to keep you training up? Feel free to purchase a membership and join our training sessions!
