The ladder and top scoring rankings have also been updated under Statistics.

No rule highlight this week, but instead some news on other water sport innovations, highlighted by Lisa. On 26 November the Hobart Aquatic Centre will be hosting the Underwater Rugby Underwater Challenge. Apparently they’re over from Sydney and there will be a game vs Underwater Hockey players.

If you’re unsure what Underwater Rugby is all about, have a look on their website and check out the videos. From our non-contact, cylinder focussed perspective it’s an interesting contrast. Definitely no cylinder there! Well, there is one, but it’s for grabbing onto :-).

Don’t forget, Finals are coming up. Make sure all your players are registered and have played at least 3 games and get ready for next week’s Quarter Final on 24/11, followed by the Semi Finals on 1/12 and Grand Final on 8/12. The roster will be completed and updated over the weekend and published Sunday or Monday.


About Water Basketball Tasmania
Water Basketball is a sport developed by The Hobart Aquatic Centre. It involves two teams of 6 players, who pass the ball down the pool to their goal end, which is a hoop similar to basketball. Each player wears flippers (and a cap to identify which team they are playing for). Goals are scored as two or three points depending how far from the goals you are.

    Thanks for the promo!! We’d really love to have some Underwater Basketball players participate in the Underwater Challenge! It’s actually more of a showcase of underwater sports, also aiming to raise awareness about lung health in Australia (we all know how precious our lungs are in our respective sports!!)

    • Hi Sebastien,

      Water Basketball is actually played above water (well, mostly 🙂 ). It would be interesting shooting the ball under water. So although it certainly requires some lung capacity, unlike underwater sports we have plenty of opportunity for breathing, which is very handy I might add 😉

      I included a link to your poster, so players can get in touch if they want to. Also, we’re about to get into the 3 week finals period, so feel free to come and have a look at our grand final on 8/12 if you’re around.

      Good luck with the event! Some of us might come and have a look, although I’m not sure how audience-friendly it is. Will there be screens & underwater cameras?
