A 24-Hour Waterpolo Marathon In Aid Of Special Olympics Malta Is Happening This Weekend


A 24-hour waterpolo marathon will be held from October 23rd until October 24th in a bid to raise money for Special Olympics Malta.



The night of the 23rd will also see a BBQ, wherein all proceeds will be donated to Special Olympics Malta. The 24-hour marathon will be held at Neptune’s Waterpolo Club from October 23rd at 12 pm until October 24th at 12 pm.


Last year, the marathon saw quite a success when it was held in September of 2020, gartering in over €15,000 for Special Olympics Malta and over 300 players.



This weekend’s marathon is expected to bring together the local waterpolo community in a big show of solidarity of support, with several clubs participating and helping in the fundraising.


Special Olympics Malta provides an inclusive infrastructure of facilities, dedicated coaches, and support personnel in a range of disciplines and regularly participates in international competitions.



Last year’s marathon also appeared to be the first 24-hour waterpolo marathon in the world, as per FINA (the international body for waterpolo).
