The water polo competition will welcome players from all over the world, and at all levels. This tournament is both for the experienced player and for the inexperienced, so you just have to enjoy the game of water polo to sign up for the tournament.

In addition to water polo, the IGLA championships will feature the other aquatics: swimming, synchronized swimming and diving.
