"It was our first festival event aimed at junior players and it was fantastic to see so many in the pool giving it their all.”
The portable Water Polo Packagoals were chosen because of their portability and professional quality. They made set up easy and performed well throughout the tournament, Mr Stowell said.
Among those watching the 18 May event was Packaworld Chief Executive Peter Roberts. He said he was impressed with the quality of play and the professionalism of the organisers.
“The team at MANUP! are doing a brilliant job of raising awareness of water polo and taking the game to new locations. The young players had a fantastic time and the open-air venue made for a wonderful event.”
MANUP! Water Polo is an event series bringing the sport of water polo from the confines of indoor swimming pools out into open air locations.
Other MANUP! Water Polo events scheduled to take place this year include open water events at Liverpool’s historic Albert Dock on 22 June and a return to the location of last year’s inaugural MANUP! event at Dock 9 Media City, Salford Quays, Manchester, on 3 August.
