What do you need to start playing?

You need to know how to swim 🙂 and take your own swimwear. Waterpolo is played with sports swimwear, so no shorts and bikinis! But for a first training, you can wear any swimwear. Just be advised it’s a lot harder with a “long pants” or really uncomfortable in a bikini… You can take goggles for the swimming but you can’t wear them while playing. We provide the rest of the equipment!
