The Swimming School of Quanta Club organizes two water polo courses specifically applying to boys and girls:

  • Under 15
  • Under 18

Both teams train 2 days a week for 90 minutes.
To take part in the team it is necessary to be able to swim at least 2 strokes.

As an olympic sport since 1900, water polo is a sport characterised  by the speed of the rhythm of the game, the sudden changes of direction and of the intense technical preparation required.

Anyone can play it, independently of  one’s individual physical characteristics as each player can find a role suitable to his own physical constitution. It is sufficient to have basic swimming ability and  minimum coordination in one’s movements.
