The Stingers are a competitive lesbian and gay waterpolo club in Sydney. Originally formed in October 2001 to represent Sydney in the 2002 Gay Games, the club is now incorporated and is a permanent fixture of the Sydney gay and lesbian sporting community, with two teams also playing in the NSW metropolitan competition.
The club’s mission is to provide an inclusive, friendly environment to learn and play waterpolo, train and socialise. Everyone is welcome regardless of experience, however to play a waterpolo game requires strong swimming skills and endurance. The club therefore encourages new and beginner players to join and actively develop and improve all the skills required.
