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 all others 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 of 10 players will play two games on both Saturday and Sunday. We aim to finish tournament play between 3-4 pm each day. Informal co-ed scrimmages are scheduled for Friday afternoon between 4 and 6 pm.

Our Gala dinner event will again be held at COPIA this year. The catered dinner will include a fabulous buffet and bar. There is a limit of 150 guests for the dinner.

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.


2022 tournament entry fees are $250 per player (includes Gala Dinner) and $200 per guest/non-player (i.e. Gala Dinner only).


The 2022 Tournament is held at the Vintage High School pool in Napa
