Water Polo

Water polois a rigoroussport,consisting of two teams with six players and one goalkeeper on each side. Players must be skilled swimmers, capable of treading water for extended periods, and should possess excellent ball-handling skills, agility, quick reflexes and stamina. Recreational types of polo include inner tube, surf and canoe polo.

Water polo is a team water sport. The playing team consists of six field players and one goalkeeper. The winner of the game is the team that scores the most goals by getting the ball past the opposing team's goalkeeper into the net.

Game play involves swimming, players passing the ball while being defended by opponents, and scoring by throwing into a net defended by a goalie. Water polo, therefore, has strong similarities to the land-based game of team handball. The frequency of 'man-up' (or 'power play') situations also draws comparisons with ice hockey.
