Could Coventry become the UK’s centre for water polo?

It’s well-known among sport lovers for its ice hockey, rugby and football teams, but now Coventry is looking to become recognised as a home for something else – water polo.

The sport, which sees players move through the water to score goals, is popular in Coventry and the city has a team competing in the British Water Polo League.

But now the sport’s national boss says he wants to see Coventry become a national hub for the game.

“I think realistically a three to five-year target to make water polo very, very strong in the Midlands and centred around Coventry is a realistic target,” said Ian Elliott, who is the ASA’s Water Polo Manager.

The Coventry club is believed to be in talks to use a new pool set to be built by the council at the Alan Higgs Centre.
