National (103)

Pearson have hit the front early in the 2015 Water Polo season with some strong performances so far, and at this early stage of proceedings command the top spot in the SA School Sports Water Polo Rankings for girls.

Several teams are included in the SA School Sports Water Polo Rankings this week after playing the minimum of two matches to qualify for inclusion.

The Boy’s & Girl’s Water Polo Results from the past week:

With a couple of tournaments that have already been completed this season we take a look at the early form that some of the leading teams are displaying so far this year.


A brilliant display by Clifton and Selborne College during the Grey College Tournament set the stage for a terrific final between the two top teams. However with the score locked at 3-3, a thunderstorm would deny either team the victory as the match was declared a draw with the threat of lighting proving too dangerous for play.

Water Polo: Results from the Past Week

The 2015 Water Polo season promises to be as competitive as ever with several teams capable of producing some big results against the traditionally strong teams.

The season is all but over and we are looking at a fairly stable top ten in the latest SA Schools Water Polo Rankings.

St. Stithians, St. Mary’s Waverley, Pearson and Roedean all lined up to try and prevent the number one team in South Africa, Reddam House, from winning another tournament as they played it out at the Saint Invitational this past week.

Clifton holds on to their number one spot in the South African Schools Water Polo Rankings although they faced perhaps their stiffest challenge of the year at the Saints Water Polo Invitational hosted by St. Stithians.

Westerford and Pearson slugged it out at the National Co-Ed Schools Tournament last week and produced a thrilling final which saw Westerford narrowly nudging out Pearson 7-6 at the end. However both teams strengthened their positions on the SA Schools Water Polo Rankings.

Crawford Lonehill brushed aside all comers at the National Co-Ed Schools Tournament last week and their dominant performance earns them their first entry into the South African Schools Top 10 Rankings.

Reddam were the clear favourites going into their own Reddam House U19 Tournament last week and as the leading team in South Africa were probably expected to live up to their pedigree.

SACS were the big favourites as some of South Africa’s top teams took part in the Maitland SACS U19 Tournament in the early part of October 2014.

Water Polo: The Boy's Top 40 Rankings

The KES Water Polo Tournament was a great test to see just how good the various teams from around the country are when they are pitted against opposition that they do not usually face.

SACS demonstrated that they are the leading team in the Western Cape and arguably one of the top teams in South Africa after they won the Maitland Night Series beating Bishops in the final.

It was the Old Petrian’s Tournament hosted by St Peters College that was the main event in the past week and which saw the very best of SA teams in action.

A consistently good season so far by SACS which has seen them go unbeaten in the last nine matches has accounted for them edging into the No.1 spot in South Africa with Clifton a fraction behind them in second spot.

The SA U18 Boy & Girls Water Polo teams have been announced who will participate at the Continental Qualification Tournament for the FINA World Youth Water Polo Championships.

Reddam consolidate their position at the top of the rankings this week after a very comfortable 11-0 victory over Bloemhof who struggled to pose much of a threat in a slightly one sided match on a boiling hot day.

Clifton hold on to the No.1 spot for the second week running after a successful match against Michaelhouse which saw the Durban outfit stretch their winning streak to seven matches and still unbeaten for 2014.
