This book documents the proud heritage and history of Australian water polo from its struggling Sydney beginning in 1881 through many fascinating and turbulent episodes. The unique and one-off publication fills a void in terms of the history of the sport in Australia and features the results of State and National competitions. Our greats of the past and present feature throughout the book as well as the performance of Australia’s International teams on the world stage, including our World Cup, World Championship and Olympic victories. The book documents and illustrates Australian water polo family at all levels and is a timely and necessary contribution to the sport.

WATER WARRIORS is a unique national history of Australian water polo and documents State A grade premiers, Australian Club (Open, U/18, U/14) & National League Champions, National Champions (Open, U/20, 16&under, Country) and the performance of Australia’s International teams (Open, U/20, 16&under, Universiade, Country) for both males and females.
