City of Manchester Icebergs, based at Wright Robinson pool

(Full address: Wright Robinson College, Off Falmer Close, Abbey Hey Lane, Gorton, M18 8RL)


A swimming and water polo club run in partnership by City of Manchester Aquatics Swim Team (COMAST) and City of Manchester Water Polo.

The swimming sessions are delivered by COMAST coaches and incorporate planned training sessions that aim to improve stroke technique and teach competitive skills such as dives, starts, and turns, in a relaxed, fun environment and works alongside COMAST to bridge the gap between the ASA swimming lesson pathway and competitive swimming.

The water polo session is led by a qualified City of Manchester Water Polo Club coach and will teach the basics of the sport, such as good ball control, swimming head up front crawl with the ball, using eggbeater kick, water polo backstroke and the ability to move off in any direction quickly using exercises and games.


The Club holds 4 sessions per week:

Monday:              6. 00p.m – 8.00pm (swimming)

Wednesday:       6.00pm – 7.00pm (swimming)

Wednesday:       7:00pm – 8.00pm (water polo)

Sunday:          3:00pm – 5:00pm (Swimming at Arcadia Leisure Centre, Levenshulme)
