The U-10 game between UE Horta Taurons and CN Sant Feliu will be the starting signal for Habawaba, the youth water polo tournament which arrives in Spain for the first time, coinciding with the European Water Polo Championships Barcelona 2018.

Habawaba (happy baby water ball) is much more than just a tournament. It is a fantastic opportunity for children to live a once-in-alifetime experience in Barcelona, both in and out of the pool. The event has been brought to Spain by the Royal Spanish Swimming Federation (RFEN), within the framework of Barcelona 2018. RFEN has furthermore appointed the Barcelona International Water Polo Academy (BIWPA), the organization of the tournament, which will gather children under 10 and under 12 at the Montjuïc Pool, located by the Picornell.

The tournament will last until Saturday the 21st, the day of the finals in both categories.

No less than 44 teams from nine countries will take part in the event (eight U-10 and 36 U-12), with a grand total of 200 matches in the five fields of play created in the historic pool. Over 600 kids will enjoy this wonderful experience during four days and will be able to watch the games of Barcelona 2018.

The brand Habawaba, created several years ago in Italy, will remain in Spain for at least two additional season, starting at 2019 with the name Habawaba Spain.
