Swimming & Waterpolo


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

We are an inclusive club which pride ourselves on offering aquatic opportunities for everyone to join, regardless of ability.

As a two-sport club, we have many members which both swim and play water polo and so, despite being a club of more than 80 members, we are a close-knit team which loves welcoming new members! 

We are lucky enough to provide multiple training sessions per week where our dedicated team captains deliver sessions in one of Scotland's best sporting facilities! All of these sessions are flexible and catered to all level of abilities so 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! As a member you are welcome to attend as many or as little of these training sessions/competitions as you like so you can fit us around your university and other commitments (dw we're not clingy but do love it when we see you)!

In addition, our 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 bust your best dance moves or belt a tune at kareoke!


 Swimming & Water Polo Membership:

  • £40 for 2nd semester only.
  • £5 for social membership (access to social events only and not training sessions)

The first two of these memberships give access to all of our training sessions and also includes entry to BUCS leagues with matches happening every week, with the opportunity to compete all over Scotland!

Membership prices are the same for both students and non-students. You will need to have the sports union student membership which can be purchased for £15 (automatically added on at the checkout). After purchasing a membership please look out for a Facebook friend request from either Jonathan Quinn or Anna Pollock or request us (Jonathan's profile pic is from his wedding day and Anna's is with a Guinness lol) - if you do not have Facebook please shoot us an email. We will then add you to our private members page. You will also need to sign our code of conduct. Please download this from the link below and send your signed code of conduct to swim.waterpolo@ausa.org.uk
