Women's LEN Trophy

The Women's LEN Trophy is LEN's second-tier competition for women's water polo clubs. First held in 2000 as the LEN Women's Cup Winners' Cup, it is currently contested by around 15 teams, which can qualify for it either directly due to high ranking at their domestic league or by being eliminated at certain stages of the Champions' Cup. Italy's Gifa Palermo, Ortigia, Racing Roma, Shturm Ruza and Imperia are the most successful clubs in the competition with two titles each.[1]
