Water polo has always been a popular sport in the Jewish community although Team Maccabi SA has not consistently competed at the Games. South Africa won the gold medal four years in a row at the 1950, 1953, 1957 and 1961 Maccabiah, followed by bronze medals in the following two Games. After a sabbatical, SA sent a team to the 2005 Games.
Maccabi SA Water Polo is making a comeback and once more has it’s eye on gold. Water polo is currently being organised in Cape Town where a junior and open team have been formed and regularly have training sessions and matches.
