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

During the Nuts v Ducks game some random teenager jumped from one of the diving platforms into the pool during the game and landed close to a few of the players. Luckily no one was hurt, but that could have easily turned out differently. The boy and his friends were spoken to and eventually ejected from the centre. In the 10 or so years I’ve played the game this has not happened, so I don’t think it’s anything to worry about; but we will be following this up with DKHAC to see what can be done to tighten up on this and also to agree on what to do when something like this happens. Last night it took everyone by surprise, so it took a bit longer to get to the right result.

Rule Highlight of the Week

Whenever a player takes any kind of free throw (regular free throw, neutral ball, goal line throw in (after score), corner, side line (after ball goes out), penalty) no player within 2 metres of the player taking the Free Throw may contest (defend) the taking of the throw or obstruct mechanics of the throw in any way (14.7).

While defending players may be closer to the person taking the free throw when they don’t defend the throw, the player taking the free throw should be given sufficient space to take the free throw without interference.

Active defense of the player taking the free throw may only resume once the free throw has been taken or after the umpire has called ‘Play On’.


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.
