Peter Roberts, chief executive of Packaworld International, said he was thrilled Packaworld’s inflatable field and goals could help bring water polo to such a luxurious location, particularly at a time when the city’s public pools have been closed.
“It is great to see water polo continuing to thrive in the Middle East and we are pleased our portable water polo gear is helping to grow the sport by making it more accessible,” he said.
Usually an international tournament, the event will be kept local this year with teams from the Middle East competing, including Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
A larger international beach water polo tournament was planned for April, with 20 teams expected to participate, but with Covid-19 restrictions still in place, the third tournament will be scaled back.
The Dubai Camels Water Polo Club is a group of water polo lovers from around the world, with about 30 nationalities of men and women in the team.
Packaworld’s portable fields, Water Polo Packagoals and Water Polo Packanets, are widely used at high-profile beach water polo events around the world, including in Australia, USA, UK and the United Arab Emirates.
