Water polo

Water polo is a physically demanding game. Players must continually swim or tread water and use their body to propel themselves. This demands a great deal of strength and stamina. The discipline involves complex passing manoeuvres and shooting at goal. Although water polo began as an exclusively male sport, an increasing number of girls have become involved in the last twenty years.
