The best way to describe a game of Water Polo is a combination between soccer and basketball played in a deep pool. Like soccer or basketball, the aim is to outscore your opponent by passing the ball to team members across the pool and scoring goals. It is a vigorous and intense game and very popular among people who enjoy the best of both a water and team sport.
