The Club Committee is proud of having managed a ‘first ever’ participation in the international sphere of waterpolo. It is also conscious of a tough qualifying round which will see the young ladies’ squad facing an uphill task against stronger opponents.

This unique experience would not have materialized without the backing of SPORTS MALTA  who believed in this participation and endorsed the Club Committee’s bold move. The Committee would like to publicly thank SPORTS MALTA for their generous contribution towards the participation costs.

Thanks goes also to other sponsors Exalco and Zanzi Homes as well as Elia Caterers the Club’s sponsor and other individual Club sympathizers who also pitched in their donations to cover the rest of the expense fund.
