Founded in 2007 and formerly part of Deben Swimming Club, Suffolk Coastal Torpedoes is one of the most progressive water polo clubs in the East Region. We started with a small number of youngsters trying mini-polo and have grown into a club where several of our players compete in regional and national teams and 4 of our players have succeeded into the England Talent Squad. Compared to other clubs we have a large number of girls who play in both mixed and girls leagues as well as at national level.
We train at Woodbridge, Felixstowe and Ipswich and are always welcome new players of any age, both boys and girls, so if you would like to have a go at this fast, exciting and fun team sport then please contact us.
