The Exiles Sports Club, located below the landmark tower on Triq it-Torri, was founded by a group of young Sliema school friends during the early sixties and established in 1967.
Progressing from a dilettante water polo team, with small social gatherings ‘tolerated’ at the then Civil Service solitary beach hut, to a top division water polo team and having its own fully-fledged foreshore Club premises.
As well as having an up-and-running swimming/water polo junior Academy (boys/girls 8 to 15 years); a separate swimming school (mainly adult ages); a ladies’ water polo team; age-group water polo teams made up of junior athletes (boys/girls U-13’s, U-17’s). All under the guidance of the Club’s able team of coaches.
All Club aquatic categories compete in the national water polo leagues as well as participate in National Swimming Championship meets, organised by A.S.A. Malta (Aquatic Sports Association of Malta).
The Club’s water-edge premises, with its open decks, bathing facilities and bar/restaurant, as well as enjoying a safe, friendly and clean environment, not only serves as a popular meeting-place but offers relaxing days from early spring, summer, to early autumn.
Friendship was the driving force when Exiles Sports Club was founded. And it will always remain so.
