3 Oct 2016 Nippers Game Results
29 Sep 2016 A huge THUMBS UP to all our volunteers
Another successful Nippers Cup tournament has wrapped up.  It was fantastic to see a girls team from Chilton play as well as a U14 boys team from St Pats Town.

To everyone that helped with pool control, to our coaches, managers and referees a huge thank you.

Our players flourished, learnt a few hard lessons along the way, and will all be better off for the experience.

Hutt Club can be very proud of delivering a true development tournament for the benefit of players.

Hutt definitely has heart … with a fantastic crew of volunteers who truly make a difference.
29 Sep 2016 U14 Boys Final a thriller at Nippers
The large crowd at Huia were treated to enthralling game of water polo when the Maranui U14 boys went head to head with Hutt.

Maranui got off to a rip roaring start finishing the first quarter with a 4 – 1 advantage.

Hutt clawed its way back into the game bringing the score back to 5 all at the half.

The game seesawed in the third ending in 7 all.  And the struggle continued throughout the final quarter with both teams hammering it out ending with 8 all at end of regulation time.

And so the game went into extra time with Maranui’s Solomon Costa  slamming home the winning goal.

Final Score:
Maranui 9:  S Costa 5; T Mark 3
Hutt 8:  G Alexopolos; 3; J Bamber 2; H Dalziel 2; C Humphries
