Rule Highlight of the Week

The Neutral Ball (S. 13) follows similar rules as a regular Free Throw, but there are some differences.

Firstly, a Neutral Ball is awarded first to the team that won the toss and alternates throughout the game from there on. It is generally awarded in cases where the umpire is unable to clearly (enough) determine which team committed the foul (e.g. simultaneous possession of the ball or jointly tapping it over a sideline, etc.) but can also be called when the ball is out of play but not not out of bounds (e.g. stuck between the ring and the backboard).

Finally, note that a player is not permitted to score a goal from a Neutral Throw. So you will always have to pass it to someone else first before a scoring attempt may be made, even if you swum away with it and ‘Play On!’ has been called.


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.
