Women's 1sts Water Polo
The Women's Water Polo 1st team is a sociable and successful team to be part of, with plenty of opportunities for those who are less experienced to continue to develop their skills, as well as catering for those who have more playing experience and are aspiring to play above university standard. The women's 1st were unbeaten in the 2018/19 South Premier BUCS League this season and were awarded Performance Team of the Year at Bristol Uni's Sports Awards 2019 in recognition of their outstanding season.
The Women's Water Polo 1st team is coached by Bristol alumni Charlie Harbot, who began coaching the ladies in 2017. With many years of playing experience and extensive game knowledge he's able to help players of all abilities work towards achieving their full potential in the pool.
Training for the women's 1st is a mixture of team training as well as integrated training with our 2nd and 3rd teams. Training for first-team players is a mixture of high-intensity training alongside tactical and skill-based sessions. 1st team players are expected to attend polo and swim sessions as well as attending strength and conditioning.
