2024 Tournament

Sponsored by Pitcher & Le Quesne Funeral Directors

2024 Tournament

On the weekend of Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st July 2024, Jersey Water Polo Association ("JWPA") are planning an outdoor tournament (both mens teams and ladies teams) at Havre Des Pas Bathing Pool, St Helier, Jersey to celebrate our 50th anniversary. Expect a weekend full of water polo, party and fun at one the most beautiful salt water pools in the world.

Havre Des Pas Bathing Pool

Constructed in 1895, water polo has been played at Havre Des Pas Bathing Pool for over a century. Today the pool looks a little different. The diving boards have been removed and the pitch has been upgraded! On tournament weekend JWPA will setup two pitches hoping to attract 8 mens teams and 8 ladies teams.

White Horse Beach Bar

On Saturday 20th July 2024, JWPA have booked the White Horse Beach Bar for food, plenty of drinks and a party late into the evening. A two minute walk from Havre Des Pas Bathing Pool with views over the bay, a DJ and exclusive use of the venue from 5pm onwards, it promises to be a great evening.
