Water polo is a competitive team sport played in the water between two teams. The game consists of four quarters in which two teams attempt to score goals by throwing the ball into the opposing team’s goal. The team with the most goals at the end of the game wins the match.
The 2019 NSW Police & Emergency Services Games Water Polo event is the inaugural event for this sport. We encourage Team Managers to enter your team early to avoid disappointment and so that the Sports Coordinator is well aware of team numbers early.

The water polo competition is to begin at 11am sharp. Team members are encouraged to arrive earlier to ensure a suitable warm up is undertaken.
