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

A quick update with regards to last week’s incident where someone jumped from the dive tower into a water basketball game in progress. The DKHAC general manager called me the following day to let us know that DKHAC takes the incident very seriously and that CCTV footage was being reviewed with the aim to take action against the person(s) involved and possibly look into improving security around the dive tower. No further news since.

Rule Highlight of the Week

Highlighting a few aspects of Free Throws this week; a goal may be scored directly from a Free Throw (including Corner Throw-in). You are however, not allowed to score directly from a Neutral Ball (must pass first).

During a Free Throw (including the Restart Throw-in, which occurs after a score), opposing players within 2 meters may not contest the ball (i.e. defend).

In accordance with 14.7.1, players may be no closer than 1 meter from the player taking the free throw. However, this is not always enforced when it concerns space limitations in the 2 meter area and/or the shooter is clearly not hindered in his/her actions or there is advantage in being able to play on quickly. The main thing umpires look for is that you do not defend the free throw.

If the quarter ends before the Free Throw can be taken (for fouls and corners only), then the relevant player may still take the shot at goal. This is of course without further movement, e.g. if it concerns a Corner Throw-in then the shot needs to be taken from the corner.


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.
