                “Our mission is to ensure the LGBTIQ+
            community and its allies can achieve what
         they want from being part of Surge, and that
     we all have equal opportunity to participate.” 




Melbourne Surge is Victoria’s only LGBTI and inclusive water polo club.

Everyone is welcome to be part of our club, whatever walk of life they come from, whatever their ability, or however they identify. 

The club is a fun and socially active organisation that exists for the benefit of our members, and to help them achieve their goals.

While some members join to make friends, others do so to focus on their fitness.

Some come along to try something new, others to reconnect with a sport they have played in the past.


Rainbow Cup is here, and it’s going to be the wettest and most colourful event of the summer!   

Rainbow Cup is the bi-annual tournament between Australia’s LGBTIQ+ water polo clubs - Melbourne Surge, Sydney Stingers, Brisbane Tritons, and Perth White Pointers. 

This year Melbourne is hosting and the event is extra fabulous as punters get to join in the fun with 'Bumpa Polo'. Bumpa Polo is a free and all inclusive event, where everyone is welcome to jump in and give it a go.

Grab your friends, put on your favourite colourful and dazzling outfits, and get ready to get in the water for an unforgettable time.


Plus stick around and catch the finals for the Rainbow Cup to see which city walks away victorious.
