Club Contacts, Fixture Secretaries (contact details as at 11 Sep 2015 below) and Officials are requested to read carefully all of the following.

Please select the appropriate menu link for tournament standings, fixtures schedule and results.

Fixture Secretaries

At this stage we are assuming all teams entering a tournament season will wish to complete until its conclusion. The number of teams entering a tournament at commencement of a season will not be exceeded during the season. A Club must advise the League Secretary immediately it one or more of its teams is unwilling or unable to fulfil tournament fixtures in the remainder of the season. In such case, by agreement of the remaining Clubs, a replacement team from another Club may be permitted to participate over the reminder of the Tournament schedule subject to commencing with 0 Standings points.

Team entry fees for 2017 must be paid by 30 Apr 2017, otherwise results will not be included. If you become aware that

  • a Club team intends not to enter a tournament round or
  • another club wishes to enter a replacement team, or
  • a club wishes to enter an additional team, or
  • a club has changed one or more team Fixtures Secretaries,

please contact admin@dorsetwaterpolo.org IMMEDIATELY so that we can

  • email our contacts, 
  • update the schedules to add / remove or amend fixtures and
  • grant / remove access to league administration areas

as required.

No doubt many girls and boys will have enjoyed and have been inspired by watching Seagulls & Otter's Kathy Rodgers playing water polo for GB and seeing team mates progress to regional and national talent development camps. We welcome Clubs wishing to support the development of Junior Ladies and Youth competitions as mini-tournaments - clubs are invited to confirm their interest to admin@dorsetwaterpolo.org.

Club Responsibilities

League Fees - Clubs will be invoiced in Apr 2017 £15 per particpating team  for payment by 30 Apr 2017.

* Recognising the importance of acquiring and developing ball handling and positional skills from an early age, DWPL has agreed that Clubs entering a 12U team  will be able to enter additional teams in the 12U 2017 Tournament Season for free.

A list of non-paying Clubs will be circulated to Fixture Secretaries.

Clubs are reminded that they are responsible for registering players, officials and coaches with the ASA in the correct membership categories. Fixture Secretaries are required to supply

  • squad lists (Team - Full Name, DoB, ASA Membership No) for their competing teams to admin@dorsetwaterpolo.org by 30 Apr 2017 and
  • similarly updated information as the season progresses.

DWPL encourages Clubs to provide the numbers of players, broken down by gender and age for each League for which they may be eligible to compete. We will then consider the possibility of  enabling players who may not otherwise get opportunities to play regularly to multi-register with a 'lead' Club to form a 'nomad' team. Clubs are reminded that players cannot turn out for more than one Club to which they are affiliated in the same Tournament season so please bear that in mind when selecting squads. 

Tournament hosts should ensure the dates and times offered allow away teams reasonable time to travel to the venue, particularly if games are scheduled for mid-week evenings.

^ The 2017 Tournament fixture schedule must be completed by 31 December 2017.

Hosts are responsible for sending correctly completed match result sheets with player information (forenames AND surnames, please)  to John Bolton within 7 days of the tournament.

Failure to supply squad lists and all match sheets may result in

  • games being forfeited
  • insurance being invalidated
  • possible expulsion of teams / Clubs from the League.

Dorset Shield

Fixture Secretaries are responsible for ensuring the prelimiary round and final are played by 31 Dec 2017 once the participating Senior Men's team draw has been made.


All clubs are reminded of the need to use appropriately qualified match officials and wherever possible, referees not affiliated to competing teams. Travelling expenses should be offered to visiting match referees and these amounts should be budgeted for by host Clubs eg when setting session fees / specatator fees.

Please note that original software calculations and sorting rules were modified to produce the Tables . Placing anomalies may therefore occur. If you discover any, please send details to admin@dorsetwaterpolo.org. Ultimately placings will be determined in accordance with League Constitution.
