This growth in status requires the club to start providing a higher standard in facilities when training and hosting home matches. The club started in 1996 and the bare minimum has been spent on updating equipment to date. The Worcester Sporting Grants has supported and contributed to purchasing more advanced equipment such as water polo markers so that the club can play host in home matches.
