The fun, exciting and inclusive atmosphere within the swimming and water polo club is what makes us so successful. We are both a social and competitive club. Welcoming all personalities and abilities! For our training times and locations please see below.
Both our male and female water polo teams compete within the BUCS Leagues and in the BUCS Cup. We also attend multiple social events throughout the year for those who wish to be involved but less competitive. Our annual Granite City Cup, which is an invitational water polo tournament with other universities across Scotland hosted by us, is one of the highlights of the year. Don’t miss the fantastic, themed night out afterwards!
Our swimming team participates in the SSS league against all Scottish universities. We also have swimmers representing RGU at SSS championships and both BUCS long and short course championships. For those who want to be involved with swimming but less competitive, we attend several social swimming events held throughout Scotland every year.
We love making memories together as a team, both in and out of the water. Our social events are never dull, from bowling nights to having a good boogie.
If you want to get in touch, email us or send a message via our social media.
Come join us and be a part of our family!

This could affect around 11 million homes in England, Wales, and Scotland (Northern Ireland sets its own cap).
The cap for prepayment meter customers will increase by £87 per year, affecting around 4 million households.
