The sport’s performances were in line with expectation in 2013, with the women achieving a silver medal and the men eighth place at the world championships in Barcelona. The result for the women’s team was especially encouraging given the turnover within the team since London. The men’s team achieved their top eight benchmark event target and were increasingly competitive, however were unabal to record any wins, against the top nations.

The Water Polo Australia (WPA) board has indicated it is receptive to governance changes in the areas where the organisation is not aligned with the ASC’s mandatory governance principles. WPA continues to improve its organisational capability but additional support in areas such as participation, finance and commercialisation would allow further development of the sport.

WPA has experienced strong growth across its membership and exposure programs. The greatest increase in participation was seen in school-delivered programs.
