The water polo section of Otter Swimming Club is one of the fastest improving and growing in the UK, offering over seven hours of coached water polo and swimming per week to members. The club fields three men's teams and two women's teams.
We train at various central London locations and emphasise not only high quality competitive water polo, but fun in and out of the water. We compete in the English nationals and many leagues. Every summer, we join a tournament in Europe to compete against other teams and to have fun with our team mates.
The men's teams compete in National League Division II, London Premier League, ASA Championships
, National League Division IV, London League Division I, the Thameside League and Middlesex League.

Otter is the leading women's water polo club in London and the South of England. In 2012 we were British Championships runners up and the only British club to make it to the last 16 in the Len Trophy Cup (European Club competition). For the past two seasons our first team has finished third in the British Water Polo League Super Fives behind Manchester and Liverpool and our second team have just been promoted to Division 2. The two teams train together, play local league games and friendlies and also have lots of fun outside the pool.
Otter is one of the great names in British water polo and swimming. The club was founded in 1869, played in the first recorded English water polo championship in 1888 and was a founder member of the National Water Polo League in 1962. The water polo side of the club is one of the fastest growing in the UK, since its restart in 2002. The teams have worked their way up to compete in the top level of UK competition within a few years of re-entering the National League, a result not in the least due to the "work hard - but enjoy" ethos that permeates the club.
If you are interested in playing for Otter, please contact Leon
Estrella (men's captain) or Lindsey Williams (women's captain). We are always looking for new players, particularly those who want to play at the top level in the UK.
