Over the years that King’s has been involved in Water Polo many players have gone on to represent their province and in some instances New Zealand with varying degrees of success. Each year King’s sends a team to the Jr. South Island Secondary School’s tournament with success. There has been a King’s player in the tournament team for the last three years: Nathan Martin 2016, Josh McGregor 2017, and Kale Twist in 2018.
King’s 1st and 2nds teams have competed in the Sr. South Island Secondary Schools tournament. In 2018, the 1st team won the bronze medal and in 2019 they placed fourth. Nathan Martin was named in the tournament team in both years.
