With 750 participants, the festival is the largest schools' festival in the world. "The logistics are incredible. 250 games will be played over four days and the Saints Aquatics Centre has been set up to hold four games concurrently. We will have 750 participants, 120 coaches and managers and we are expecting around 4 000 spectators,” said Frank Baker who is the chairperson of the Saints Invitational Water Polo tournament.

We are looking forward to hosting this large number of spectators at our Aquatics Centre and on our campus. The tournament is a great celebration of the sport and the many lessons players learn from participating in team sports and competitive festivals.

Spectators are invited to support the players as they compete in what will be a tough but rewarding four days of water polo. There will also be refreshments and food, a live screening of the epic Rugby World Cup clash between South Africa and New Zealand on Saturday, and a hospitality area for over 18s.

The school thanks all of the parents and sponsors, for their fantastic work towards making the tournament possible.
