Weekly Rule Highlight

As outlined in Section 5 of the Regulations, at any time during a game a player may be substituted by leaving the field of play through the “Interchange” area by diving below the rope and surfacing in the field of play. Technically the substitute player may only enter the field of play from the Interchange area as soon the exiting player has visibly risen to the surface of the water within the Interchange area, although this is generally not enforced by the umpires, unless this is abused and some unfair advantage is gained.

The game continues during substitution (and during minor incidents such as cramp or a lost fin for that matter). Any non-substitute player entry to the field of play (e.g. a late arrival) must take place through the Interchange area. Entering the field of play pool in any other manner may result in a minor foul and turn over to be taken from the half-way line. If not in possession then the player must leave the field while play continues (will only be stopped by the umpire if the in-possession team suffers disadvantage) and the player must re-enter through the Interchange area.


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.
