Sistemi Galleggianti/ About

The best value for money

Sistemi Galleggianti is a company employed in the manufacture of water polo, beach water polo and canoe polo goals, field of play, billboards, of customized or not standardized measures, too.

Our equipment perfectly responds to the needs of both professional and simple water sports enthusiasts.

The Floating Systems production line was created to respond to the activities of the Pallanuoto sempre association, composed of famous Italian athletes and water polo players of all time, such as: Pizzo, Ghibellini, De Magistris, Parisio, D’Angelo, De Crescenzo, Mannelli, Porzio, Ferretti, Gandolfi, D’Altrui, Campagna and many others. One of the objectives of the association was to contribute to the creation of the Beach Waterpolo and to relaunch water polo at the sea.

The first structures were built thanks to a project by Mr. Ignazio Crivelli, professor of the Faculty of the Engineering, University of Naples, Federico II, who designed the first fiberglass prototypes with innovative concepts of weight and design.

In 1998 the water polo goals were redesigned by Vittorio Ercolano, organizer of the Beach Waterpolo. Vittorio offers aluminium structures which are particularly flexible, light, stable and strong. In a short period of time the first tests on the new water polo goals were passed, collecting appreciations and flattering judgments.

The philosophy of Sistemi Galleggianti is in fact based on continuous innovation. The goal is to create a water polo goal which best performs its function in every respect, at an absolutely competitive price.

Sistemi Galleggianti uses profiles designed and manufactured independently and produced by Metra Spa with top quality materials, which in many systems lasted over ten years. A result of certified work processes, such as QUALICOAT and SEASIDE treatment (treatment for marine environments). In addition, materials painted with AL3000 (red) have class 2 powder to reduce colour loss.

Up to now, more than 1,500 specimens have been produced and sent worldwide: Berkeley University, China, Oman, Hungary and so on.

Since 1998 we have never stopped. Our work is always in progress: the water polo goals of our production have been remodelled with continuous improvements, to guarantee high level performance, at any latitude and for every need.


Our water polo goals

  1. Elegantly designed:
    The structure, essential and technically perfect, is at the same time elegant and in complete harmony with any competition field: from the amateur ones to the fields for high level competitive competitions.

  3. Lightness.
    Moving them has never been easier. A 5 mm PVC insole is applied to the EVA floats of closed cell expanded foam. The sole has the function of a slide: by slightly lifting the water polo goal on one side it is easily slipped into the water – a maneuver accessible even to a boy.

  5. Safe:
    all unnecessary protrusions such as pins, nuts, etc. have been eliminated.

  7. Visibility:
    the red base is easy to identify for the players.

  9. Compact:
    the application of a transverse tube, anchored to the two net-holders, makes the water polo goal more compact and solid in the joints so that the weight discharges over the entire surface.

  11. High Performance:
    The extension of the base of contact with the water to 25 cm in width and the increase in length to 1.25 improve the tipping resistance and stability

  13. Guaranteed overtime:
    the fixing of the plug-in netting holders directly inside the structure and the relative fixing with transverse pins, 8 MA countersunk screw, determine a compactness and a unique seal by extending the life time of the water polo goal.

  15. High Buoyancy:
    An additional band of expanded foam inserted on the floating base increases the buoyancy reserve, bringing the water polo goal immediately back to the optimal position if needed.

  17. Easy to assemble:
    The water polo goals are shipped partially assembled. Assembling them is easy and intuitive, as shown on the pages of our site.

  19. Reduced shipping costs:
    This kind of system as conceived, the minimization of dimensions and the choice of couriers, allow us to apply really affordable shipping rates.

They say about us

"Certainly the best-constructed and lightest goals I’ve ever seen. They are the team favorites and already have proven their durability with the season of repeated use. My goalies like their balance, and my field players like the construction. I couldn’t be more impressed with the product”

Jim Flocerniger

Water Polo coach of Harvard University Boston

“Last year was the first season that our championship started using your Waterpolo goals. This year, at our second season the goal posts are still as good as new. The goal posts are very usable also because they are light and easy to mount and dismount. During the championship, all the teams have told us that your goal posts are number 1 in Hungary!"

Tamas Ambrus e Zsolt Petováry

Hungarian water polo coaches

“This gate is fantastic! I play water polo since 1980. And I participated more than 10 years in Official International Competitions (Olympic Games, World and Europe Championships). I have been in more than 20 countries of the world. And I have never seen the gate such a good quality.”

Dimitri Apanasenko
