Vaterpolski klub ?ibenik or simply ?ibenik was a Croatian professional water polo club from the town on the Croatian coast called ?ibenik. Club offices were on address Prilaz tvornici BB.


The club is taking part in the Croatian Water Polo Championship for many years. Until 2002, the club played their home matches on the pool in Solaris (10 km from ?ibenik), but then the pool was closed and there was a big break, which took a part on the club. Finally, in fall 2006, the new pool was built and the club started to advance. With the arrival of new sponsors Nautical Center Prgin the club changed its name to ?ibenik NCP. Club was dissolved in August 2015 and by merging VK Adriatic and ?ibenik, a new water polo club VK Solaris was founded.


Although it never won a championship, it was a very tough rival to all other clubs. Also, many players from ?ibenik were in national teams, or they were in state champions; but the best of them are: Perica Buki?, Renato Vrbi?i?, Sini?a Belamari?, Denis ?upe, and Andrija Komadina.

The best success accomplished in the 2006-07 season when it was second place in the LEN Euro Cup, and third in the Croatian Championship, leading by Ivica Tucak, a water polo coach also from ?ibenik.

Also, one of the biggest successes were winning the second place in the 1986-87 Yugoslav Water Polo Championship season, while in the 2008-09 season the club played LEN Euroleague, the strongest water polo competition under the auspices of LEN.
