Birmingham Bluefins is the water polo team of Moseley Shoals. We play for fun, and our sessions are designed to ensure everyone enjoys themselves, whether they've played before, or are completely new to the sport.

If you enjoy it, and want to improve your game, we also now offer a monthly Tuesday session – first Tuesday of each month only – where you can train and play in a deep water pool. Just bring swim kit and a towel.
We play Water Polo on Wednesdays at Small Heath Leisure Centre (20:30-21:30), and the first Tuesday of each month at Stetchford Cascades (21:15-22:15), with a social drink after both sessions. Call 0121 346 1522 for further info, or visit our website.
