  • 4. When it was invented
    • The game was invented in 1969 by now retired UC Davis associate athletic
    • director of intramural sports and sport clubs, Gary Colberg. Noticing how
    • much fun the water polo team was having, Mr. Colberg thought up the idea
    • of using tubes so that people with no experience in water polo could still
    • enjoy the game.
    • Water polo is a rapidly growing sport in the United States and
    • internationally as well.
  • 5. Introduction
  • 6. Introduction
    • Water polo is a team water sport that combines some elements of
    • swimming and basketball. Teams are composed of about 12 players,
    • depending on rules of the league. Seven players are in the pool at a time,
    • which includes one goalie and six field players.
    • The winner of the game is the team that scores the most points, with
    • each goal being worth one point.
    • -One player on each team is designated the goalkeeper, assigned to
    • deflect or catch any shots at goal. The goalkeeper is the only player
    • who can touch the ball with both hands at any time.
    • - Players are not permitted to push the ball underwater.
    • -There are seven players in the water from each team at one time.
    • There are six fielders and one goalkeeper.
    • Usually, men play four 7-minute quarters while women play four 6-minute
    • Quarters.
  • 7. Rules of water polo
  • 8. Rules of water polo
    • There's no intentional contact with any other player allowed.
    • 2. Players aren't permitted to touch the ball with two hands.
    • 3. There are only two fouls allowed during a game, more than this and the referee will eject you.
    • 4. There is no hitting another players arm while he is passing or holding the ball.
    • 5. No player may push off from a defensive player. This will result in the referee in calling a foul on that player.
    • 6. There's no touching the bottom or sides of the swimming pool.

  • 10. Starting play
  • 11. Starting play
    • At the start of each period, teams line up on their own goal
    • line. Three players go to both sides of the goal; the goal-
    • keeper starts in the goal. At the referee's whistle, both
    • teams swim to midpoint of the field (known as the sprint or
    • the swim-off).
    • In International competition the ball is placed in the middle
    • of the pool and is supported with a floating ring. The first
    • team to recover the ball becomes the attacker until a goal
    • is scored or the defenders recover the ball. After a goal is
    • scored, the teams line up anywhere within their halves of
    • play, but usually along the midpoint of the pool.
  • 12. Water polo equipment
  • 13. Water polo equipment
    • - Uniforms consist of swimsuits for both men and women, as well as a cap on
    • the head with plastic ear protectors and the player's number on both
    • sides. Away teams wear lighter color caps, while home wears the darker
    • color.
    • -Ball: A water polo ball is constructed of waterproof material to allow it to
    • float on the water. The cover has a special texture so it won't slip from
    • the hands of a player. The size of the ball is different for men's and
    • women's games.
    • -Caps: A water polo cap is used to protect the players' heads and ears,
    • and to identify them. Home team field players wear numbered light or dark
    • caps, and visiting team field players wear contrasting caps. Both starting
    • goalkeepers wear (quartered) red caps, numbered "1“.

    • the leading sports for both men and women's athletics.
