Grads Invitational Tournament 29th & 30th Sept

Before we all break up for the summer, I just wanted to let you know that Grads are again this year holding an invitational tournament in Belfast on weekend of 29th & 30th September 2012. This years competition will be for those born 1997 or younger.


This is our 3rd year of the competition with the last two years being a mixed competition. This years tournament will be a single gender competition in conjunction with the Ulster Waterpolo Branch Policy, and judging by the number of teams competing at the most recent U14 Cup in Dublin I don’t see this being an issue as in previous years.

Please let me know if you are interested in entering a team / teams

Enjoy your summer holidays. Hopefully see you all in September.
