We like to carry out regular socials (normally with a theme), once every week in the first term and once every other week after that. Socials will all be held in person this year unless government guidelines change. Our social secretaries work very hard to make these as fun as possible! We will also be bringing in small social groups, compliant with government guidelines, to give people to chance to meet in person! If any member is still feeling uneasy about socialising in person, don't worry there will be some online events so you can still get involved!



Swimmers who love a bit of fun competition or any members who like socialising, we will be taking part in Short course BUCS, our captains will also be organising in-club galas, as well as friendlies with other local universities so there will still be a chance to compete! We are attending Long course and Team Champs, both great weekends of racing not to be missed! 

Synchro will be competing in a competition up in Nottingham in February, with their annual showcase taking place in April.

Water polo also takes part in BUCS competitions throughout the year, putting forward both male and female teams. If you want details or have questions about competitive water polo, speak to the male and female captains (Toby Danielson and Leire Mared).

Water polo and swimming will compete in Varsity, a competition between the University of Plymouth and Plymouth Marjon!  

As a club, we look to carry out as many charity fundraising events as possible. Members will have a chance to get involved with smaller fundraising events like bake sales and charity fun galas. We welcome any fun fundraising ideas for the year ahead.

We look forward to meeting everyone!
