Water polo club Jug

Last updated on Monday, 19 June 2017

The pride and joy of all Dubrovnik! Water polo is a main sport in Dubrovnik and everlasting small talk theme among citizens.

Played almost everywhere during the summer, water polo is the favorite sport among all generations of Dubrovnik residents. No wonder "Jug" is the best water polo club in Croatia, Europe and the world!

Established in 1923. and played in the sea until 1961. when the club moved to the newly built pool in Gruz. During the past, Jug and it's players won numerous world and European prizes, Olympic medals (players) and national championships, but the most significant year for Jug was 2006. when the club won all four trophies on all four championships (Championship 2005./06., Cup 2006., Euroleague 2005./06. and European Supercup 2006.)

A remarkable fact is that Jug's players are all from Dubrovnik. In all of it's history, you can use the fingers on one hand to count the players that Jug bought out from other clubs.

Joining up for a game on Jug's stadium, you'll experience the fanatic cheering and support for the local team. When the game is on, as if all the locals vanish from the streets, the city becomes a quiet place. Until you pass the Jug stadium where you can hear clear and loud cheering.

Stop by, see the game, be a local for a while ;)
