Water Polo


The game of water polo is an international sport and is played by two teams of seven players, six field players and one goal keeper. Game play involves swimming treading water (using a kicking motion known as “eggbeater kick“), players passing the ball while being defended by opponents, and scoring by throwing the ball into a net defended by the goal keeper - Water Polo Australia
