a game played in a swimming pool by two teams of swimmers who try to throw an inflated ball into the opponents' goal
A water sport consisting of two teams of swimmers who have to throw the ball into the opponents goal.
Water polo, or Water ball, 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. Game play involves swimming, treading water, players passing the ball while being defended by opponents, and scoring by throwing the ball into a net defended by a goalie. 'Man-up' situations occur frequently. Water polo, therefore, has strong similarities to the land-based game of team handball.
