The men’s Water Polo Varsity on Sunday March 9th will be yet another closely contested fixture in the 2014 Series.

As with most other London Varsity sports this year, our UC water polo men look like the stronger side, sitting in BUCS South Premiership, a league above King’s.

The club says that they are evenly matched teams, having played them regularly this season. It will be great to watch UCLU and KCLSU splashing out their rivalry in what will be another neck to neck Varsity match.

These are your UC Water Polo men – take a look at the Varsity squad and make sure you don’t miss out on this exciting event.
