Bunbury will host the State Country Water Polo Championships

The Bunbury Water Polo Club is set to host teams from across WA as part of this year's State Country Water Polo Championships.

Teams from Port Hedland, Karratha, Geraldton, Peel, Busselton and Bunbury will battle it out this long weekend.

Games will start on February 26, ahead of the grand finals on February 28.

Six men's sides and six women's teams will play throughout the weekend, with a junior exhibition game to be held on the 27th.

Bunbury Water Polo president Alice Luscombe said the club was excited to host the other associations, and to show them everything that Bunbury has to offer.

"We are also really looking forward to giving our juniors a chance to participate in the event with the HULC Junior Exhibition Game," she added.

Bunbury's men's side won the championship in 2019 and 2020, and is now looking to make it three in a row.

Bunbury's women's team will be in the hunt again this year, after finishing second and third over the past two years.

Spectators are more than welcome to come down, view the games, and experience all that water polo has to offer.

Along with hosting the championships, the Bunbury Water Polo Club will be celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2021.
