South Korea
Dream Park Aquatics Center
Saturday, 20 September - Wednesday, 1 October

For the Asian national teams a tournament marked in their schedule is just around the corner as from Saturday on the water polo action at the 17th Asian Games will get underway starting with the women's tournament. The South Korean city of Incheon has the privilege of hosting the Games, first held in 1951 in New Delhi. In the previous edition, four years ago in Guangzhou, China, it was Kazakhstan who took an upset gold medal edging hosts China 7-6 in the final while Japan took the bronze. The women's tournament will see just its second edition in Incheon next week with, not surprisingly, China as the defending champions. The women will play a round-robin format with the winner taking the gold medal. The men's tournament however does hold a full tournament set-up.
