Mikasa is the official game ball sponsor for the 2019 Schools Water Polo SA (SWPSA) Inter Provincial Tournament that starts this weekend. With 121 teams participating and 1 700 athletes taking part, it’s one of the largest school sport tournaments in South Africa and is expected to attract over 5 000 spectators.
The 455 games will be played with the same balls that are used in the Olympic Games: the W6000W men’s size 5 and the W6009W Compact size 4 official FINA match game balls. Mikasa is also the official game ball supplier for FINA, the international swimming federation under which water polo falls.
“Mikasa is once again honoured to be associated with IPT’s and we look forward to a very successful tournament,” says Nick Wiltshire of local distributor Pat Wiltshire Sports.
The tournament runs from Saturday (7 December) till 11 December and will take place at nine venues in Gauteng.
