Best of the Super 5's to be shown on Sky Sports
Sky Sports will be screening the best action from the British Water Polo Super 5's in two one-hour match-of-the-day type programmes - one highlighting the women's competition, the other for men. The television initiative has enabled the League to secure a much-needed main sponsor - garden buildings specialists Bourne Buildings, of Farnham, Surrey whose company ethos is "Best selection, Best service & Best prices".
The whole package has only been made possible thanks to the fantastic support of "friends of the League", covering everything from the actual production of the programmes and artwork through to substantial, all-important funding. View trailer by Neutral Corner Films below.
Otter made sure of the women's Super 5s title, beating Coventry 12-9 in their final match at Haberdasher's Askes' School on 25 March. Salisbury's Katy Cutler tied for third place top scorer with 16 goals in the women's competition. Former champions Liverpool Lizards finished as runners-up despite losing 8-7 to Manchester.
Success for Otter followed Solihull's victory in the men's Super 5s. Solihull were guaranteed top spot after defeating City of Manchester 7-6, although they did lose their final game - 11-10 to third-placed Polytechnic. Manchester beat Lancaster 10-3 to finish as runners-up.
