Tournament Details

For the 2023 Tournament, all games will be scheduled the week prior to the tournament.

      • Friday, 4pm – 6pm: Open Scrimmage from
      • Saturday, 8:30am – 4:30pm: Water Polo Games
      • Saturday Evening, 6pm – 10pm: Dinner Gala and Dancing (includes food + alcohol and is included with your registration)
      • Sunday, 9:15am – 4:30pm: Water Polo Games

This tournament is a perennial blast and we highly recommend it to you if you like playing water polo in the sun with fun, supportive teammates. Also, the competition is always good and exhausting. The dinner and dancing are just plain great.

Open to Men 40 years and older and Women 25 years old and over. The tournament will be limited to 10 Women’s Teams  and 10 Men’s Teams.

In true “Napa Style” each entrant will be placed on a team based on abilities and experience. This allows us to create balanced teams and to enhance the social aspect of the event. Our goal is for you to meet new people, make new friends and have a great time playing the game we love.

Each team will play two games on both Saturday and Sunday. We aim to finish tournament play between 4-5 pm each day. An informal co-ed scrimmage is scheduled for Friday afternoon between 4 – 6 pm.

The tournament is an open format (or “Napa Style”) meaning anyone can sign up (as an individual) as long as…

      1. You are a current US Water Polo member in good standing
      2. If you are a male, you are over 40 years old, otherwise you are over 25 years old
      3. We receive your registration form + payment before the tournament runs out of availability

A few days prior to the tournament we assign each player to a team, doing our best to make evenly matched teams for maximum fun.


2023 tournament entry fees are $250 per player (includes Gala Dinner) and $150 per guest/non-player (i.e. Gala Dinner only).


The 2023 Tournament will be held at the Napa Valley College Pool

Registration closed.


The 19th annual Napa Valley Masters Water Polo Tournament will be held Friday – Sunday, July 07 – 09th, 2023 at the Napa Valley College Pool.
