"This competition provides clubs with the opportunity to compete with some excellent European club and players," - Graeme ThompsonCity of Liverpool’s Joanna Mountfield said: “Even though several of our best players will not be available due to being placed abroad with continental clubs as part of the GB Performance Programme we regard this competition as an important development experience especially for the younger players who will now have an opportunity to take part."
British Water Polo National Performance Director Graeme Thompson added: "This competition provides clubs with the opportunity to compete with some excellent European club and players.
"I expect a high level of Polo throughout the five days of competition.
