West Hollywood Aquatics (WH2O) is a Masters swimming and water polo club based in West Hollywood, California. The club currently has a roster of over 180 athletes from around the Southern California area. The teams include athletes of all abilities ranging from ex-Olympians to beginners. Everyone is welcome regardless of skill, gender, race, sexual orientation, or disability.

WH2O grew out of a group of athletes training for Gay Games I in 1982. After returning from the Games, the participants started the West Hollywood Swim Club, which now including water polo, is West Hollywood Aquatics.

We have daily professionally coached workouts as well as seasonal clinics to develop each member’s skills. Your first workout with us is complimentary! Visit the swim team and water polo team pages for more information and their regular workout schedules. Come on in, the water’s great!

WH2O is one of the founding members of International Gay and Lesbian Aquatics (IGLA) and is sanctioned by United States Masters Swimming (USMS) and United States Water Polo (USAWP). Locally, the swim team belongs to Southern Pacific Masters Association (SPMA), while water polo is part of USWP’s Zone 11, Coastal California Water Polo. The teams and their members compete in regional, national, and international meets and tournaments.
