Weekly Rule Highlight

The duration of the game, breaks and potential overtime are described in Section 10.

As pretty much everyone knows, a game lasts for 4 periods of 8 minutes of playing time. Rest time between quarters is 2 minutes and with 30 seconds to go both teams should take their places on the field. Please don’t be late, since that affects everyone involved, including potentially pushes out the game finishing time which then impacts the next two teams.

Lesser known is what happens when regular time ends in a draw in a game where a result is required (a finals game). If that happens, there will be the normal 2 minute rest period followed by two further 3-minute periods (teams swap sides for the 2nd period) of extra-time with no rest period in between.

The team that previously won the toss has starting possession for the first period of overtime and the opposing team has starting possession for the second period of overtime. The Neutral ball rule should continue as is; i.e. it does not reset back to the team that started the game if it is the other team’s turn.

If the scores are level at the end of overtime, there will be a further 2-minute rest period followed by a continual period of ‘Golden Goal’ overtime. So, the team that scores the first goal wins. Note, the team starting with starting possession and Neutral ball possession for ‘Golden Goal’ overtime will be determined by a new toss.

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.
