The 3rd edition of HaBaWaBa Greece is scheduled on July 2018, from 5th to 8th, at Glyfada Nautical Sports Club in Glyfada, that already held the 1st edition of the event. HaBaWaBa Greece is part of HaBaWaBa International Circuit and it is organized by Delta I.S.O. Sports Events Service in cooperation with Waterpolo Development.
In 2017, HaBaWaBa Greece took place at the olympic swimming pool of Municipality of Alimos, South Athens. Compared with the first edition, the teams went from 23 to 27 (21 in the U11 tournament, 6 in the U9) and the total number of attendeesincreased from 394 to 455. Three nations were represented: Greece, Egypt and Italy. Such as 100 games were played in four days, but only a club celebrated the victory: both the tournaments were won by N.E. Larissas, the U11 category by their Assassins team and the U9 competition by their Hippocampus team.
The parents of little players were also satisfied. They have enjoyed Mediterranean cuisine and refreshments overlooking the magnificent view of Alimos Marina, in the Cafe Restaurant Dia Noce, as well as the opportunity to visit nearby Athens. The Dia Noce also hosted all the educational and recreational workshops of HaBaWaBa Greece: LEGO Serious Play, nutrition seminars and painting contest. All of them had a great success among the children.
The Hellenic Olympic Committee, the Hellenic Swimming Federation, the Association of Greek Water Polo Referees as well as the World Water Polo Referees Association are supporting HaBaWaBa Greece that has become the most important event in the Mediterranean area.
The 1st edition of HaBaWaBa Greece was held in 2016, from July 20th to 23rd, in Glyfada Nautical Sports Club, in Athens, and it was attended by 24 teams coming from Greece and Egypt.
