The Female Squad of the Club also won several titles since it was established back in 1977. The Club participated in overseas tournaments not less than seven times and organizes an annual International Waterpolo Tournament for both males and females.
The Club had amongst its ranks some of the best players to ever play the game on the island such as Freddie Grixti and Kurt Dowling, the latter winning for three consecutive years the player of the year award. San Giljan ASC has also brought over as the senior team’s foreigner some of the best players in the world including world stars and Olympic gold medal winners Igor Milanovic, Peter Biros and Dubravko Simenc.
