OPEN CLUB NIGHTS
UQ Water Polo hosts a number of Open Club Nights throughout the year where members, friends, and the general public are encouraged to drop by for a friendly game, and get to know what the club is all about.
These social Open Club Nights run as a small in-house tournament, where mixed teams battle it out in order to boost morale and meet like-minded people. Teams are grouped by skill, ensuring everyone has a great time. No need to book – simply drop by, or bring a friend and experience what it’s like to play with UQ Water Polo.
If you possess an Annual Water Polo Program Pass, the Open Club Nights are free.
