A game played in a swimming pool by two teams of swimmers who try to throw an inflated ball into the opponents' goal.
Water sport developed in England 1869, originally called “soccer-in-water”. The aim is to score goals, as in soccer, at each end of a swimming pool. It is played by teams of seven on each side (from squads of 13).
An inflated ball is passed among the players, who must swim around the pool without touching the bottom. A goal is scored when the ball is thrown past the goalkeeper and into a net.
