Water polo

We offer two water polo practices a week. During the practices, you will work on basic water polo skills like sprinting, bal feeling and game situations. The practices our made so that beginners easily can join, but that it is still challenging for more experienced water polo players. Every year, we join four student water polo tournaments and we go to several big water polo tournaments like Moby Dick and Zepta Ter Apel. Moreover, Ragnar has ladies and men’s team in cooperation with Z&PC Rotterdam. These teams play in the Dutch water polo competition.


Four times a year, the Dutch Student Water polo Competition (NSWK) is being organised. During this afternoon, you play several matches against other student water polo association. Afterwards, we have diner together and you can get some drinks. There is a beginner’s pool and a pool for more experienced players, so that water polo players of every level can join. The NSWKs of the season 2018-2019 are:

  • NSWK I – not yet known – 28 October
  • NSWK II – not yet known – 16 December
  • NSWK III – Tilburg – 17 February
  • NSWK IV – Rotterdam – 11 May

Next to the NSWKs, we join multiple regular water polo tournaments. Most of those tournaments are a full weekend. You will sleep in a tent, eat together, and party! These tournaments are the way to get to know the other water polo players better.

This season (2018-2019) we will join a couple of tournaments as well. The dates and locations of these tournaments will be announced as soon as possible!
