Greater Philadelphia Water Polo Club
About Greater Philadelphia Water Polo


We offer water polo for individuals 18 years of age and older, with practices and games at the Villanova Pool in Villanova, PA.

New to Water Polo?
Water Polo is an Olympic Sport. Two teams try to score goals in a net 1 meter by 3 meters. Games last about an hour and they are full of swimming, throwing, wrestling, and scoring goals. Our game is a combination of basketball, swimming, and soccer.

I play water polo already. What should I expect?
For most of the year, Thursdays is simply a scrimmage night where players are divided into teams and we play throughout the evening. During the Summer we scrimmage one day a week and for the second day we have our house league games.  We split the club into three teams or more and compete in a round robin play.  We typically end the Summer with a large six to eight team tournament with other clubs from outside of the area.

I play, but I’m still learning.
That’s great. Come to our practices¬† We have individuals that have never played before as well as those with experience. You do need to be a competent swimmer and able to tread water.

Should I just come by?
Yes. There is no charge for your first practice. You’re invited to show up and see what we’re about.
