Women's Water Polo
Matador Pool is the home of the nationally-ranked Cal State Northridge women's water polo team.
Located on the southeast corner of the Kinesiology building, the outdoor facility includes an eight-lane, 25-yard competition pool. The facility also includes a four-lane, 25-yard pool immediately west of the competition pool for warm-ups and training. Both pools are heated to a temperature of 80 degrees at all times.
Matador Pool has undergone major renovations in recent years. In the summer of 1996, the plumbing and wiring system was replaced and the warm-up pool was lengthened from 20 yards to its current 25 yards. In addition, a new deck and gutter system was installed as well as an updated heating system which now ties into the central heating unit of the university.
Separate men's and women's locker rooms connect Matador Pool to the Kinesiology building.
The first women's water polo home game took place on March 8, 2002 against UCLA. The first home victory took place on March 28 with a 10-4 decision over Cal State Hayward.
Admission to CSUN women's water polo games are free.
