Three BIWPA tournaments confirmed for 2020
There will be new editions of Beach Polo, Turbo Cup and Masters Cup next year.
BIWPA will organize three major tournaments in 2020. Beach Water Polo Costa Brava (fourth edition), Barcelona International Turbo Cup (5th edition) and a completely renewed Barcelona Masters Cup (third edition), with new dates and location.
The three events will be held between the last week of August and the first two weeks of September, in all cases dates close to the beginning of the preseason for water polo teams in Spain.
Beach Polo | Sun, water polo and party
The first will be the Beach Water Polo Costa Brava. The reference beach water polo tournament will take place for the fourth consecutive year in Palamós (Girona), in the famous Catalan Costa Brava, from August 28th to 30th, for men, women and coed teams over 16.
This fourth edition comes with several new features. BIWPA has incorporated a registration option without accommodation, for those teams that have residence near by. In addition, the two hotel options have dropped in price, with the aim of achieving a more massive event and welcoming more than the 20 teams that came last August.
The All-Star game will take place on Saturday, while the two dinners with party will also happen on the first two nights (Friday and Saturday).
Turbo Cup | A high-level preseason tournament
The week after Beach Polo will be the Turbo Cup's turn, which will celebrate its fifth anniversary. Since it was born, it was presented as an ideal tournament for the preseason, aimed at 18U men's teams and senior women's teams. The truth is that the event has maintained its essence all these years: presence of international and national teams, the participation of some high-level teams and the guarantee of a minimum of 7-8 matches (real time) for all teams.
The Turbo Cup will take place once again in the Montjuic Municipal pool, undoubtedly one of the event's main attractions. The Olympic facility will host the competition from September 3rd to 6th.
Masters Cup | The best masters water polo is back
After the great success of the first edition of the Barcelona Masters Cup last June at CN Barcelona, with 21 teams from 9 countries, the event has new dates and venue. The new location will be the Montjuic Municipal pool, which will host the tournament from September 11th to 13th with three different age groups: +30, +40 and +50 men, women or coed.
For this second edition, the organization will set up two playing fields in the 33-meter pool, while there will be a village area with music, chill-out zone and bar service around the diving pool.
