Club Nataciò Barcelona is the first champion of HaBaWaBa Plus U13.

Because of those results, Barcelona reached 21 points in G-B1 group, becoming first HaBaWaBa Plus U13 champion.

There was a big celebration for players in the water and fans on the olympic pool stands. Catalans, coached by Nil Martin, were awarded during the closing ceremony of the event.

The names of the HaBaWaBa Plus U13 champions: Pau Vilar, Joan Garcia, Robert Lopez, Marc Valls, Marc Frigola, Abel Ramon, Nacho Barbagallo, Ivan Villanueva, Bruno Viaas, Oscar Artigas, David Ramirez. These last two players were with us in one of our waterpolo camps. We are really happy for them.
