THE fixtures have been released for the upcoming 2017-18 Water Polo WA Premier League season and the Women’s competition features four teams in the Fremantle conference and three in the UWA conference.

The Water Polo WA Premier League has undergone a significant restructure heading into the 2017-18 season and that has seen the implementation of the conference system with teams falling under the Fremantle and UWA conference banners.

In the Women’s Premier League for the 2017-18 season, that will see the Melville Marlins, Dolphins, North Coast Phoenix and Applecross (Melville) field teams in the Fremantle Conference in the competition that begins this Saturday.

Players from those four clubs will be eligible for selection in the Fremantle Marlins team in the National Water Polo League beginning January.

The UWA Conference, at this stage, has just the three teams made up of the UWA City Beach Bears, the UWA City Beach Blues and Triton.

Those players will be available for selection with the UWA Torpedoes in the NWPL.

The season will begin this Saturday and conclude Saturday March 10, and will feature 16 rounds of competition ahead of the finals.

Twelve of those rounds will feature matches between each conference so a mixture in Fremantle conference between Melville, Dolphins, North Coast and Applecross.

Meanwhile, Triton and the two UWA City Beach teams will rotate playing one another in the UWA conference with the other having the bye.

There will also be four rounds of cross conference matches allowing for all teams to play each other at least once during the 2017-18 Women’s Premier League season beginning this Saturday at both Bicton Pool and HBF Stadium.
