BWPL chairman David Andrews said: “This initiative is something we believed was essential to give our sport far more exposure – and to demonstrate what a great spectacle water polo provides.
“What must be stressed is that the whole project has been self-funded by BWPL thanks to sponsorship and the very generous support of friends of the league. Bringing it to fruition is a huge coup for BWPL – and what better timing than in the year of the Olympics.”
