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

Note that there are no games next week, due to Show Day. We’ll resume the season with Round 12 on 30 Oct. after which there will be 2 more rounds until the finals. As indicated on the Roster page, Quarter Finals 20/11/14, Semi Finals 27/11/14 and Grand Finals & Awards night on 4/12/14. The grand final (only) will have its customary earlier start at 7pm.

Rule Highlight of the Week

Sections 15.8 and 15.9 of the Regulations deal with the (minor) foul of having more than 2 players of a team in the 2-meter area. There was a mention of it in one of last season’s posts as well.

In addition to what is explained there, note that reaching into that area (as the 3rd player of your team) is also not allowed. For example, 2 players of your team are within the 2-meter area and are just outside. While very tempting, you are then not allowed to reach into the 2-meter area to grab or tap the ball away as that would be an unfair advantage.


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.
