Congratulations to our U14’s for triple wins at the Devonport Friendly tournament. And thanks to Devonport for the invite and organising. The first game was a closely fought battle against Taunton, finishing 4-3 to Exeter. A very nervous and shaky starter game for Exeter, but understandably so due to not having full training sessions since mid-February. Second game vs Paignton, our team improved well after the first match and came back together with more decisive play in attack and defence, winning 6-1. Third game vs Devonport, we started with our...

Exeter Water Polo

Our new U17s team played their very first Devon League match of the season, away at Newton Abbot. Against a much more mature and experienced team, in a difficult, half-shallow pool, coach Andy Saulter, was pleased with how his Exeter youngsters acquitted themselves. They refused to give up and were definitely seen to improve with each quarter of play. The final score was 15-4 to Newton Abbot but - given that our Exeter squad have not been able to train together for several months now and some of the players...

The men’s national league team will be back in Division 2 next year after two close games in the final weekend of the 21/22 competition.

Both matches were close games, and the team showed some of the best performances of the campaign. They lost to the two London sides, 16-14 v Invicta and 15-11 v Sutton....

On the same day that our ladies reached the pinnacle of British water polo by gaining promotion to NWPL Div 1, our grassroots MINI POLO team began their journey into playing water polo, with our club's first-ever Mini polo friendly match vs Paignton. As our Mini Polo squad are without pool time currently, we are incredibly grateful to Paignton Water Polo for hosting us. THANK YOU! Our main aim was to have fun, play some polo, defend, make some saves, steal possession, attack, and score goals. We did all that...
