London Orca, founded 2002, is the water polo team of Out to Swim, welcoming both men and women. They train at Porchester Baths, Queensway and at ULU.

In March 2002 a grant from Awards for All enabled Out to Swim London to develop a masters water polo programme to further promote participation in aquatic sparts within an atmosphere where lesbian and gay, and non-gay athletes can practice together in mutual understanding and support.
