PROGRESS ALL THE WAY FOR WOMEN'S WATER POLO
The National Women’s Water Polo League was formed at a meeting at Gurnell, London, in November 1987 and staged its first season in 1988 with seven teams.
These were Stretford, Potters Bar and Coventry in Division One and Sirens, Dunfermline, Merseyside and Sheffield in Division Two.
After ten seasons, the league became an official ASA competition with 20 teams. The ASA link remained until 2009 when, once again, the NWWPL returned to organising its own affairs.
At the launch of the British Water Polo League, the women’s game in the UK is in its healthiest state, with 30 teams from England, Scotland and Wales taking part in four divisions – plus a popular Spring Cup competition.
