Get behind the UWA Torpedoes!

See the Sponsorship information package 2019

 It is with great pleasure that the UWA Torpedoes invite your participation as a sponsor of the club for the 2019 season.

As a sponsor you will be supporting our core activities which are coaching and developing players to play in the Australian Water Polo League (AWL)


This season the club will enter a team in both the Men’s and the Women’s National Water Polo League competition.

2015/16 Champions

In 2015/16 our men’s Torpedoes team achieved the ultimate success.  They became the NWPL champions for the first time.

It is hoped, with your support, that the men’s “Torps” can achieve back to back success by once again winning the championship title this season.

Athlete costs

The cost of maintaining a program for our athletes is always high. The sport is played worldwide and the best teams are based in Europe. So in addition to playing in the National league during the Southern hemisphere summer, many of our athletes have to travel to Europe every winter when representing an Australian team.

This is difficult as all players are full time students or working professionals, and unlike other sports, we cannot offer our players paying contracts.

What we can do though, with the generous support of our business community, is subsidise the cost of the coaching, competing and travel for our own national league competition.  This makes it more available to all aspiring and talented water polo athletes.

We are always hopeful of reducing the cost to make the sport more available to a wider playing group.

About the Torpedoes

The UWA Torpedoes is a AWL franchise of the very successful parent UWA City Beach Water Polo Club.

UWA City Beach won all men’s national titles during 2016. The two clubs have a playing membership of 1,000, and a direct interest group of at least 3,000 people. In addition, UWA has 25,000 enrolled students and a large alumni, providing a total exposed interest group approaching nearly 30,000 people.


  • In 2010, the club enlisted coach, triple Olympian Andrei Kovalenko, to our men’s team resulting in a huge improvement in our national standing. This reached a peak with the proud victory in the 2016 championship.
  • 2019 sees the appointment of Damian Kelly as coach of our Men’s team. Damian brings a wealth of experience and we look forward to continued success under his watch.


  • The Women’s team has a new coach this season with the appointment of  Vaughn Thomson.
  • Vaughn’s focus will be on developing our young team, with the expectation of making the medal playoffs this coming season.

Please call me if you have any queries, or would like to discuss any aspect of Sponsorship for Season 2019. We would love to welcome you on board!
