The Barts and the London Annual Fund provided a grant to set up the first ever Women’s Water Polo Team as part of the Barts and the London Water Polo Club.
We wanted to start a women’s team to boost the sport within the University and to offer female members of the club more chances to play in competitive matches and improve their water polo skills.
Samantha Hodges, Treasurer BL Water Polo Club
The Club was awarded £2,602, which went towards recruitment, women’s kit, pool hire and a mixed water polo tournament involving six teams from different sports clubs across the university.
Since being awarded the grant, the Club has held independent women’s training sessions and has played its first women’s match against UCL women.
