Make Water Polo your goal
Centre forward, centre back, driver or wing – there’s never been a better time to make Water Polo your thing
It can be fast and furious, requiring skill, strategy and stamina but Water Polo is not just a great game, it’s an excellent way of keeping fit and making friends too. It’s a sport that Team GB dominated in the early part of the twentieth century bringing home 4 gold medals in 5 Olympics. Sadly after 1920 the gold rush ended and Team GB have seldom made the cut since, though they did make an appearance in the 2012 Olympics – by virtue of being the host country.
Teams of seven compete in this contact sport. Originally believed to have been a water version of rugby the modern game takes some key bits from football, basketball, hockey and arguably volleyball and chess too! There’s a net and goalie of course but this is a game that requires nifty hand not foot work. Each goal scored is worth one point and the aim is to score as many goals as possible.
