All new Australian Water Polo League to get underway

Posted by:

WATER Polo Australia has given the national league a revamp for 2018 with it rebranded into the Australian Water Polo League supported by naming rights sponsor OVO Mobile and there’s no better way to begin than with a Western Derby at Bicton Pool on Saturday February 3.

The all-new Australian Water Polo League sees its Round 1 take place in the first weekend in February 3 and it’s highlighted with a Western Derby at Bicton Pool.

The action gets underway with the Fremantle Marlins taking on the UWA Torpedoes women at Bicton Pool from 6.30pm.

That will then be followed by the men’s contest between the Fremantle Mariners and UWA Torpedoes from 8pm.

For those who can’t be in attendance at Bicton Pool to watch the action in person, both games will be broadcast live through OVOPlay. For more information head to the OVOPlay website by clicking here. Or head to the OVOPlay Facebook page by clicking here or the Twitter account by clicking here.

It has never been easier to watch the national competition live on your computer, on your phone, on social media and by connecting any those to your TV screens.

It is all set up to be a fascinating first season of the new-look AWL and the Western Derby to start proceedings will give a good glimpse into how the Fremantle Marlins and Mariners, and UWA Torpedoes are shaping up for the upcoming season.

Make sure you check out the action this Saturday night either by heading to Bicton Pool in person or by watching on any of the numerous ways now available through OVO Play.

And get to Bicton Pool early if you can because a massive day is planned with the Water Polo WA Premier League action scheduled through the afternoon.

It begins with the men’s action from 1.15pm with the South Fremantle Bloods playing the Port Colts before the Dolphins then take on the Melville Sharks.

The women’s Premier League action begins at 3.45pm with Applecross playing the North Coast Phoenix and then at 5pm, it’s Dolphins against the Melville Marlins.
