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

Rule Highlight of the Week

Fill-in (any fill-in, so non-registered as well as registered) scores count towards the team total during the first 3 rounds of every regular season (see 6.4 of the regulations), which will give teams the opportunity to settle into their final form. In addition, during the first 3 games of the season, there is no minimum of 4 own (as in, not registered with other teams) requirement and the minimum of 4 players can be met through use of fill-ins from other teams.

During Round 4 and subsequent rounds we switch back to normal mode and each team must have a minimum of 4 of its own registered players (or forfeit the game – don’t forget you could still play a scratch match with whomever is there). Registered fill-in scores then no longer count towards the total team score.

So in other words, during those rounds a non-registered fill-in can score and that score will count towards the team total score, but they will not be attributed to the players top scoring rankings & not be eligible for B & F points until officially registered with a team. Scores from registered (with another team) players do not count at all Round 4 onwards, so also not towards the total team score (and obviously not be eligible for B & F points for that game).

Duty teams please note that if this happens (a registered player scores as a fill-in during round 4 or a later round), and an umpire has not picked this up and signals the score, these scores should not be counted on the score sheet (and the fill-in names should be written into the specific section on the sheet).


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.
