The 10th edition of HaBaWaBa International Festival will be the greatest ever. In 2016 the record number of 123 teams joined the event, but the next edition – scheduled from June 25 to July 2 at the Villaggio Ge.Tur at Lignano Sabbiadoro – will have more than 130 participating teams.

The huge amount of registration requests have forced Waterpolo Development to expand the number of participating team for Under 11 tournament, breaking the limit of 96. In few weeks you’ll know the exact number 11U teams that will join the HaBaWaBa International Festival 2017, but it will probably be around 110. Adding the 24 teams of the Under 9 tournament, the HaBaWaBa International Festival 2017 will overall have more than 130 teams.

This change has pushed Waterpolo Development to a remarkable organizational effort, but the requests have been accommodated thanks to the increase of the number of the playing fields: the U11 tournament will be played in 5 different fields, not on 4 as before. Adding to those the pool dedicated to the U9 tournament, HaBaWaBa International Festival 2017 will be overall played on 6 fields: that’s another record!
