Junior development director Damian Kelly said the club wanted to expose younger children to water polo.

‘We want to develop their skills at a young age,’ Mr Kelly said.

Flippaball, which will complement the District Schools Competition on Saturday mornings, is a modified version of water polo that does not involve scoring.

Challenge Stadium’s outdoor water polo pool will be divided in to four fields every Friday night from October 18. For more information, email flippaball@citybeachwpclub.com.au or call 0477 991 962.
