Welcome to Sutton & Cheam Water Polo!

Water Polo is a physically demanding Olympic Sport combining ball and swimming skills, and teamwork. It offers the opportunity for swimmers of all ages to continue within a sport which offers competition and success as well as a strong social side for senior players. Based in the London Borough of Sutton in South West London, Sutton and Cheam is recognised as one of the leading clubs in British water polo. Traditionally, the club senior teams compete in Green and Gold, the original club colours.

A founder member of National Water Polo League (now the British Water Polo League) in 1962, the club has remained in the BWPL ever since, winning on several occasions and currently competing in Division 2. Locally, the club has plenty of opportunities for competition all year round; competing in the London, Surrey and Winter Water Polo Leagues and knockout competitions. Over the years, Sutton & Cheam has been one of the most successful water polo clubs in London and Surrey.

Sutton and Cheam is also well represented in Surrey County and District (London Region) sides at all age groups from Under 14, to Masters. Some players also go on to England Schools, the National Academy, Regional Training Centres and Great Britain representation at junior and full international levels.

The men's 1st team currently competes in the London Water Polo League Premier Division, the London Winter League, Surrey Water Polo League and the British Water Polo League Division 2.

The Men's 2nd team has just been promoted to the London Water Polo League Division 2, and also plays in the London Winter and Surrey Water Polo Leagues, and other local knockout competitions. The team is made up of experienced players and our stronger juniors, blending experience with youthful enthusiasm. This gives our juniors the chance to play with more experienced players in games of higher quality than they might normally meet in junior competitions.

Many Sutton & Cheam players have achieved representative honours over the years. Most recently, the club's first team goalkeeper, Matt Holland, represented GB at the London 2012 Olympics and is currently playing professionally in Aix-en-Provence in France. Matt learned to swim and play water polo at Sutton & Cheam and still plays for the senior team when he is back in the country.

Similarly, Sutton & Cheam's Brooke Tafazolli is currently in the GB Women's Under 20 squad, and in the running for a Rio 2016 place.

Experienced players or potential players of any age are always welcome. If you have played before; or you are a strong swimmer and would like to have a go at this fast, exciting, fun sport, please contact:

Dave Andrews (our Chief Coach) on or give him a ring on 01737 813843.
