Can I still become a member? Water polo training in London takes place on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday evenings. However, since water polo is a contact sport where injuries are not uncommon, especially bleeding of the nose and mouth and superficial scratches, the issue of HIV transmission arises. You'll get to know the sport, the skills and techniques involved and you'll get a glimpse into the wonderful world of LGBT Water Polo. This will be our first international competition, competing in the recreational division. You have the possibility of taking part in a free trial.

Waterproof Makes a Splash
You'll get to know the sport, the skills and techniques involved and you'll get a glimpse into the wonderful world of LGBT Water Polo. London Orca have put together a 6-week beginners course to teach you everything you need to know. The mastery of egg-beater kick swimming on the spot, treading water is an important asset, but this technique can be taught during practice. Their training sessions generally involve cigarettes and choreography. At each training, water polo caps will be loaned to the players.
Moreover, if a member participates in tournaments, he or she must represent ACC. You can join the club at any time of year, even if you are a beginner. The initial lessons will focus on developing your swimming skills before quickly moving onto the handling and passing of the Ball. It's not compulsory, but after training there's always a group of people heading out for something to eat or drink, and trips away to competitions are always great fun. Nothing prevents you from taking breaks if you find it too exhausting. The club was formed in February and has since grown to over 70 members with 4 teams competing in the Brisbane Seniors men's competition.
