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

Game start times have been slipping a bit more of late, especially the first game slot. Please make sure you are poolside at around 7.30pm and in the water, ready to go, for a 7.45pm game start. Similarly, please don’t delay the start of the 8.30pm games and get into the water, or ready for duty/umpiring asap after the first games.

Firstly as a courtesy to those that are on time, those that play the second game slot and ultimately to THAC staff who are affected in their end-of-day cleaning up duties. Secondly besides others, you are also likely to shorten your own playing time (as the game clock tends to be started, regardless of players being ready) and as you may have noticed, a rushed start to your game is unlikely to bring out your best performance ;-).

Lastly, a few players have been asking about substitution and game entry procedures. Please check out Section 5 of the Regulations. All substitutions should take place at the halfway line side rope (usually marked in red), by passing under the rope. By the way, during the game players should not rest on that rope, as it needs to remain visible at all times. When the game is in progress, any entry by a player into the game area must occur via that same substitution point of entry. Although umpires don’t always penalise incorrect substitutions and game entry, it can be called as a minor foul and result in a turn-over.


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.
