The National Water Polo League is the premier Australian domestic water polo competition. The men's league began in 1990 and the women's league started in 2004. Twelve clubs compete in the league, each fielding a women's and a men's team. As of 2012 five clubs are based in Sydney, two in Brisbane, and one each in Adelaide, Fremantle, Melbourne, Newcastle and Perth.
The first history of the sport in Australia was launched in February 2009, under the title 'Water Warriors: Chronicle of Australian Water Polo', by Dr. Tracy Rockwell. The 592-page publication features over 1,300 images and is an in-depth reference on water polo in Australia from its very first match in 1879 to the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. An updated edition is being planned.
