Welcome to the Sydney Stingers Website

The Stingers are a competitive lesbian and gay waterpolo club in Sydney. Originally formed in October 2001 to represent Sydney in the 2002 Gay Games, the club is now incorporated and is a permanent fixture of the Sydney gay and lesbian sporting community, with two teams also playing in the NSW metropolitan competition. 

The club’s mission is to provide an inclusive, friendly environment to learn and play waterpolo, train and socialise. Everyone is welcome regardless of experience, however to play a waterpolo game requires strong swimming skills and endurance. The club therefore encourages new and beginner players to join and actively develop and improve all the skills required.

This season, the Sydney Stingers has two teams competing in the NSW metropolitan league:

Team A Currently plays in the M5 division of the Sydney Metropolitan league every Tuesday night. Team A is an experienced team and players in this team have years of solid waterpolo playing experience and look to increase their levels of fitness, continue to develop advanced waterpolo techniques and to compete in the M5 Metropolitan league and at other State and in International tournaments.

Team B Plays in the M6 division of the Sydney Metropolitan league every Tuesday night. Team B is for players who are continuing to develop and enhance core skills, increase fitness levels while learning a serious sport in a fun environment and play in the M6 Metropolitan league.

Rookies are also encouraged to swim with the team on the Thursday night swimming sessions until the Bootcamp courses are available.
