On April 30th 2016, Cardiff International Pool played host to hundreds of University water polo players for the 2015/16 UPolo league finals.
More than 20 teams across Divisions 1 and 2 competed for the Ladies' and Mens' Shield and Cup. Throughout the day, teams competed in at least 3 fixtures, with the action culminating in 4 Finals and 4 Playoff matches.
UPolo British Championships 2016 Winning Teams:
Congratulations to Cardiff University Men's team for winning this year's Men's Trophy. Cardiff always prove a tough side to beat, and this isn't their first Cup win, so keep your eyes peeled next season, though they are saying goodbye to some longstanding 4th year players.
Cardiff Met men were worthy winners of the UPolo Division 2 Shield.
After going unbeaten all season, Sheffield Hallam fought hard to lift the trophy beating Cardiff Ladies in the finals.
Exeter Ladies saw off three other teams in their roun- robin group to be crowned the first ever champions of theUPolo Shield. Well done ladies!
We took TONS of action photos from the Finals but there was plenty going on poolside too.
