Water polo will take place at Okanagan Lake at either Tugboat Beach (Waterfront Park) or Cold Sands Beach (City Park) in Kelowna.
The lake temperature at this time of year is normally above or around 25 degrees celsius.
Kelowna is busy in July so booking accommodation early is important. UBCO has some affordable options that are located a 15 minute drive or 45 minute bus ride from downtown Kelowna.

Note: provincial Water Polo Canada membership required to register

Can I wear a wetsuit?
Absolutely. If you think you will be a bit chilliy in the lake then lake (did we mention it gets up to 25 celsius or more) then wearing a wetsuit is a great option.
What should I bring to the tournament?
As well as the regular snacks, water and towel we will be outside in the sunshine so some shade, chairs and perhaps even a cooler would be a great idea.
What happens if there is bad weather?
In the event of rain we will continue to play but if there is thunder or lightning we may need to stop games for safety reasons.
How long will the games be?
This is our first year running the tournament. We will be making up teams and deciding game length based upon the number of registrations. We will aim to give everyone plenty of game time.
Can I play up?
If you have played up an age group in your club then please drop us an e-mail after you have registered. We will prioritise players in each age group but there will likely be opportunities to play in more than one age group.
