The 2015 ASA National Age Group Water Polo Championships will resume this weekend with the girls’ U17 and U19 Prelims from Walsall.
The U17 competition will take place on the Saturday as five teams compete in Group A and four in Group B with the top two from each group progressing to the Qualification round.
Defending champions London Otter and six-time champions City of Manchester take on Cheltenham, Leeds and Grantham in Group A while three-time champions City of Liverpool will be hoping to progress from Group B alongside one of Bristol Central, Exeter and Caledonia.
Sunday’s U19 Prelims boast the thinnest field of the four competitions with four teams in Group A and three teams in Group B.
Only the bottom side from each group will fail to progress to the Qualification round – and will instead play out the Plate match at the Finals weekend – with City of Manchester and Otter again together in Group B with Scottish outfit Caledonia, and defending champions City of Liverpool taking on Cheltenham, City of Leeds and Crawley in Group A.
