Did you know?

  • There are seven players in a water polo team. Matches consist of four periods, each of them eight minutes long.
  • A team has just 30 seconds to attempt to score before the ball is returned to the opposition.
  • Players aren’t allowed to touch the sides or the bottom of the pool during play, and may swim as much as three miles during a match.
  • At London 2012, matches are taking place in the brand new Water Polo Arena, constructed specially for the Games immediately next to the Aquatics Centre in the Olympic Park.
  • Water polo first appeared at the Olympics in 1900. Great Britain won four of the first five Olympic tournaments but Hungary are the sport's most successful nation, winning 15 medals, including nine golds.
