Medal Events 1

The 1924 water polo tournament was held at the Piscine des Tourelles in Saint-Mandé, in the Val de Marne départment of the eastern suburbs of Paris. This was also the site of the swimming and diving events, and the swimming section of the modern pentathlon. There were 13 teams entered in the tournament, which was held as a single-elimination tournament, with a Bergvall format tournament used to contest the silver, and then the bronze medals. In a Bergvall format, all those losing to the champion play off in a small-tournament for second-place, while those losing to either the champion or runner-up contest a tournament for third-place.
