Water Polo is a competitive team sport where two teams attempt to swim and score a goal by throwing a ball into the opposing teams net. Originally played to showcase an individuals strength and swimming skills, water polo has continued to be a constant team sport in the Olympic games since 1900. Typical teams consist of 6 field players and 1 goal keeper, with the winning team having scored the most goals during the four quarters of the game. During the course of the game, players are required to tread water, and often use an eggbeater technique to stay afloat.

How do you play water polo?

Water polo is played on a 30 meter (98 feet) by 20 meters (65 feet) with two teams of 7 players: one goalie and 6 field players. The objective of the game is to swim for the ball in the beginning and score a goal on your opposing team's net.

How long is a water polo game?

A water polo match has four eight-minute periods that combine for total 32-minute playing time. Time can be affected by the 30-second shot clock if the opposing team takes too long to shot, or fouls and penalties can also make the match last longer.

How deep is water polo pool?

The minimum depth of water in water polo must be 1.8 meters (6 feet) for practicality purposes. Any lower than that and players won't be able to swim comfortably especially since field players cannot touch the ground when playing.

Water Polo Pool
Group of scaled illustrations of various sports fields compared to the Water Polo Pool

A Water Polo Pool is a rectangular and deep pool with two floating net goals on each end for the sport of Water Polo. As the pool size typically defines the boundaries of the game, there are no boundary lines or floats necessary besides the mid-pool line that marks the center of the pool. Along the ends of the pool are where the goals float, and alongside the goals are re-entry areas for players to enter into the boundary of play. Since players must tread water during the game, the standard water polo pool is several feet or meters below a standard players height.

Water Polo Pools have an overall length of either 82’ or 98.43’ (25, 30 m) and width of 65.62’ (20 m), for a total area of 5382-6458 ft² (500-600 m²). The depth of a Water Polo Pool must be a minimum of 6’ (1.83 m).
