Who are the Whiskey Jacks?
The English Bay Whiskey Jacks Water Polo Club are an LGBTQ-friendly water polo team open to all, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, skill level, or experience located in Vancouver, British Columbia. We currently practice programs working on developing skills and fun scrimmages and are actively developing a recreational league.
Before the Whiskey Jacks the English Bay Water Polo Club was Vancouver's LGBT Water Polo Team. The original club operated for 15 years from 1989-2004 participating in international competitions, and hosting fundraisers to support the community.
10 years after the dissolution of the English Bay Water Polo Club the English Bay Whiskey Jacks Water Polo Club formed as a recreational club at the Vancouver Aquatic Centre. Below you'll find a timeline of key events in the histories of both the English Bay Water Polo Club and the English Bay Whiskey Jacks Water Polo Club.
