About Wyvern Waterpolo

I’m Simon Tomlinson the Head coach and Director of Wyvern waterpolo.

I have a long history within Waterpolo , playing at all levels from successfully winning the British Championships and national league titles with Bristol Central to playing at county level with Somerset and Gloucestershire before stepping up into representing the South West and then ultimately being selected for International duties at both Junior and Senior level playing in Home internationals and other international competitions across the world. I have played at various locations across the world in international competitions and learnt a great deal from playing against some of Europe’s best teams.

I am now actively involved within the Coaching arena as Head coach of my local team, Head coach for all Somerset County teams and Head coach for South West Girls teams U14/16 & 18. This has now moved onto the highest level as an active coach within the England National Academy and recently become part of GB girls coaching team. I am looking to offer my skills to assist any waterpolo player who requires them. From beginner to playing at a local club, club to county player , county to regional level and regional to national levels.
