Aquatic Super Series
Perth, Western Australia
The Aquatic Super Series combines a unique festival of elite and mass participation aquatic sport, headlined by the Australian Swim Team taking on the might of China and South Africa. A world-class program of pool events held at Challenge Stadium in Perth, along with two international water polo matches and a series of elite and mass participation open-water races, make up this iconic international aquatic event. The Aquatic Super Series is the only time that the Australian Water Polo and Swim Teams get to compete on the same stage, with the exception of the World Championships or Olympic Games.
