Match Fees are applicable to all members who play for Melbourne University Water Polo Club during the fixtured WPV competitions, tournaments or other social competitions where applicable. Summer Competition Match Fees have increased by $15 from the 2022/23 fees.

A Training Levy will be charged per season to Social Members only who train regularly throughout the competition season, but do not compete in one of the club’s competition teams. This levy contributes to training costs, including pool hire, coaching and equipment costs to run training sessions.
