The water polo team Mannekenfish was established in 2012 within BGS with the objective to develop this collective sport and share good times in a friendly atmosphere.
Practicing water polo requires good swimming skills and to feel confident in the water. Nevertheless, this sport is accessible to all and our first objective is to learn, build up our technique and last but not least, develop a true team spirit.
The training consists in different parts: warm up in the water, followed by practical and tactic exercises. Usually, the training ends with a little friendly match.
The team also participates in tournament, friendly games and training camps in Belgium and abroad. A good opportunity to travel, have fun and meet new people!
The 2023-2024 season started in September 2023 with specific trainings for newcomers. If you want to join the team or if you have questions, feel free to contact us.
You can also join us on our Facebook page Mannekenfish.
