About Us

Originally known as the Glenfield Aquatic Club when it was first formed in 1986, the young club was renamed in 1994, as the North Harbour Water Polo Club (NHWPC) and then renamed again as NorthSport Water Polo in 2002 when it came under the Millennium Institute umbrella. The club has grown to become the largest club in New Zealand and in 2007, reverted once again to the North Harbour Water Polo Club.

Currently the NHWPC club rooms are based at the Millennium Institute of Sport and Health where the members have the opportunity to utilize:

  • The Olympic training and competition pool. 
  • The support facilities including a 400m outdoor track and outdoor fitness exercise trail for conditioning.
  • One of the most up to date gyms with the latest equipment
  • And an environment for social and serious club and high performance development.
