Mini-polo Festivals

These opportunities are facilitated for new players, coaches and officials to put into practice their water polo skills in a low-level competitive environment. They also give Clubs the opportunity to identify and develop key volunteers.


The festivals are for u12s mixed teams from any club or school

  • in 2017 for players born 2006 and younger
  • in 2018 for players born 2007 and younger


Festivals are promoted using a poster; setting out entry fees and a simple set of rules adapted for the venue and pool time available.


Swim England North West can provide equipment; including electronic scoreboards, goals, lane ropes, pitch markings, hats and balls. We can also put you in touch with the Event Managers from the Clubs that have previously hosted festivals to assist with planning your event:
