||Nippers Cup Final Results by Brian Morrison.
The 2010 Nipper's Cup was a huge success, with 17 teams competing from the Wellington region, as well as from Palmerston North and Southland in the Under 12 & Under 14 competitions. With 52 games scheduled, games started on Wednesday, Thursday & Friday evenings across 3 pools, then all day Saturday & Sunday, primarily at Huia pool.
Huge improvements in the standard of water polo could be seen as the tournament went on, with the final's day producing some outstanding performances. Notibly it was pleasing to see Manawatu (NZ's newest club) collect it's first tournament medal and Southland collecting a Bronze in the U14 Girls, adding the icing to the commitment to compete at Nipper's cup.
The standard of Refereeing was also equal to that of a national tournament and ensured games were run well. It was also a successful tournament for the Hutt Club, with 6 teams entered and 3 medals won.
