Brisbane Tritons join the Barracudas family

The Brisbane Barracudas are delighted to welcome the Brisbane Tritons to their club.  Following the success of the Melbourne Surge and the Sydney Stingers, the Barracudas have been working with members of the Brisbane gay community to establish the Brisbane Tritons.

The Brisbane Tritons are an open and inclusive team of gay water polo players that encourages participants of any age, level or ability, to play water polo in a fun and social environment.   Over the past few months, the Tritons have been training under the guidance of the Barracudas Academy Coach Simon Daley.received_10156985631235372

To assist the Tritons in growing their team and their brand, the Brisbane Barracudas have entered into a partnership with the Tritons which has already been proven beneficial to both parties.  The Tritons now join the Melbourne Surge and the Sydney Stingers as the third LGBTI water polo team and planning is underway to have the Surge and the Stingers come to Brisbane to play in an event similar to the Pride Cup held earlier this year in Melbourne.
