University of Notre Dame – Irish Invitational – Women – March 25-26, 2023

The University of Notre Dame will host a women’s water polo invitational tournament, the 2023 Irish Invitational, during the weekend of March 25-26.

The team hopes to provide an opportunity for a number of teams to come to South Bend and compete in at least four games over the course of the weekend.

The tournament will be a round robin format with a premium being placed on pairing teams that may not get a chance to play one another on a regular basis.

If enough teams attend to run the expected format, the fee for the weekend will be $450 for those who confirm and send checks prior to January 31 and $500 for those that enter after that date.

Should interest exceed pool time to accommodate the event, preference will be given to those that respond earliest, and those who have hosted Notre Dame (for non-CWPA events) at their pool in the past, followed by CWPA Collegiate Club member institutions.

All competition will take place in the Rolf’s Aquatic Center on campus of Notre Dame. Rolf’s provides a 25-meter all deep facility with floating goals.  The pool has hosted multiple CWPA regional championships as well as the 2016 Women’s CWPA National Collegiate Club Championship.

Notre Dame’s campus is located less than 100 miles from Chicago for teams contemplating a longer trip. Preferred hotel and travel information will follow for those who confirm.

Questions regarding the tournament should be addressed to head coach Brian Coughlin at
