The u16 Junior Water Polo Championships will kick off in East London on Sunday, almost a week after the u18 campaign concluded at the Joan Harrison Swimming Pools.

The junior sides, also competing for top honours and places in the National side will be in action from Sunday, with both girls’ and boys’ finals scheduled for Tuesday morning.

In the boys section, the teams in action are Western Province, Central Gauteng, hosts Buffalo City, Nelson Mandela Bay, Eden, KwaZulu-Natal, and the Northern Tigers.

Province, KZN, and Gauteng will enter the tournament undoubtedly as the favourites.

Coach Kwakhona Ngwanya will lead the side from Cape Town and has selected a strong line-up for the weekend.

His team includes two players high in confidence. First up is Rondebosch Boys High’s Noah Reiback, who starred for his school during the final of the KES Water Polo Tournament earlier this month.

Province will also be relying on the accuracy and composure Matthew Fenn has shown for his Bishops side this season. Fenn scored a cracking seven goals during the final of the SACS Nite Series against SACS to lead his side to a 14-11 win.

Province will kick off the action at 09:00 against Nelson Mandela Bay.

An hour later, the hosts, Buffalo City will take on Eden. However, the match of the day will be the late kick-off between KwaZulu-Natal and Central Gauteng at 16:00.

The girls’ section, structured just as the boys will feature, Central Gauteng, Nelson Mandela Bay, Eastern Gauteng, Eden, Western Province, KwaZulu-Natal, and Buffalo City.

The opening day’s play will see Central Gauteng take on rivals, Eastern Gauteng. Nelson Mandela Bay will be looking to hit the ground running against Eden.

Meanwhile, all eyes will be on the Western Province, and KwaZulu-Natal clash at 16:00.

All the action will be LIVE on SuperSport Schools.
