What is Water Polo?

Water polo is a fast-paced sport played by two teams in a swimming pool.

There are goals at each end of the pool and, similar to other sports such as football, the winner of the game is the team that scores the most goals by getting the ball between the posts. Water Polo matches are played in swimming pools with two teams, each with seven players (six outfield player and a goalkeeper) and six substitutes.
