Weekly Rule Highlight

As everyone probably knows, only 2 players of each team are allowed to occupy any space within each 2 meter area (see 15.8 and 15.9 of the Regulations). Any part of a third player in the 2 meter area is therefore a foul, including the extended arms of the 3rd team member into the 2 meter area (e.g. to grab or tap the ball).

If the defensive team had more than 2 players in the 2 meter area, and the attacking team was in possession of the ball, the attacking player with the ball at the time of the foul must choose between taking the free throw either from the spot he/she was in at the time, or on the 2 meter line directly in front of goal (the player should indicate this last one to the umpire, or Play On may be called). If it was a defensive foul and the attacking team was not in possession of the ball, then the free throw must always be taken on the 2 meter line directly in front of the goal by the attacking player nearest to the ball at the time of the foul.

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.
