Welcome to the website of E.S.W.Z.V. nayade. The club originated from the Eindhoven Student Corps, but the bond with this corps is something that belongs to the past. It started on May 24, 1961 with the “Eindhovense Studenten Zwemvereniging Nayade”. Later the name was changed to “E.S.W.V. Nayade”, because at that time only water polo was played at Nayade. Since 1994 the name is “E.S.W.Z.V. Nayade” because we have an active swimming branch again. Swimming The swimming branch currently consists of about 100 members. These are approximately equally divided between the technique group and the competition group. Anyone who wants to learn to swim competitively can join the technique group. Members who have been competitive swimming for some time now swim in the competition group. Swimmers of all levels are therefore represented, from absolute beginner to Dutch Champion. Water polo The water polo branch currently consists of four teams, 2 men's and 2 women's teams and about 15 guest members who only train at Nayade. Men 1 plays 3rd division league and men 2 2nd district. With the ladies, ladies 1 plays 1st district and ladies 2 3rd district. The games are mainly played on weekends, usually on Saturday afternoons or evenings. In addition, the teams regularly participate in (inter)national tournaments and NSWKs. Activities Besides sport, recreation is also an important part for the Nayadian live. Because of that, there are dedicated committees who organize activities such as the beer pong tournament, the eat relay race, the club championship and much more. The place where most of these activities take place is the Nayadehuis. In this house, 11 active members live, who organize the Nayade house party with a yearly different theme.
