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

Last round next week, before we head into the 3-week finals period (see bottom of the Roster page for remaining dates and next season dates).

Regarding the end-of-season get-together and awards presentations we are looking at scheduling for a BBQ at the Waterworks on 3 Dec; we provided all captains with details on 25 Oct and asked them to check with their teams so we can determine what the level of interest is. Can all teams please let us know ASAP, through their captains, whether they’d be able/want to come along?

Rule Highlight of the Week

With the Finals rapidly approaching, a quick word on Fill-In arrangements during the Finals period of a season. During that time, teams may not use fill-ins from other teams or non-registered players and may not field additional male players from the same team should there be less than 3 females available. To play in the Finals, a player must be registered and have played with a team at least 3 games before he/she is allowed to play for that team in the Finals. Note, that if a forfeit occurred, all players registered at the time of that game will be considered as having played that game (3.4.1).

When a team has less than 6 players (registered with that team) available to play during Finals and the missing player(s) cannot play due to medical reasons (a medical certificate must be presented to a Board member before the game), replacement fill-in(s) may be used regardless of whether they have played the minimum of 3 games with that team (6.7.1).

These are the rules, but we always aim to be flexible when considering each team’s circumstances. Any proposed deviations from the above will need to be discussed with the opposing Captain and at least one Board member as early as possible before the game (e.g. via email days before). Should the opposing team not agree with the suggested changes, then that stands and should not be subject to further objections.


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.
