South Derbyshire has two men’s teams, who play in both local and national leagues. Ages range from 16 to 50+, giving all the teams a balance of youth and experience. As well as a strong competitive edge the local leagues provide the opportunity for junior to develop their game at a higher standard. The national league, which was entered for the first time in the clubs history in 2005 represents the highest standard of water polo in the UK. Played over a series of weekend between October and December, the leagues are also an excellent social experience as well as a tough water polo challenge.
