No horsing around
Believed to have originated in Scotland in the late 19th century as a type of "water rugby", water polo is now a celebrated Olympic sport which is not only rich in tradition, but rich in health benefits too.
Just add water
Think of it as a combination between soccer and basketball, but in a pool!
Shape up or ship out
Like swimming, water polo helps you stay in shape. Very few sports require full body motion that promotes a healthy body and an upright posture. Not only will you improve your posture and stay fit you will also develop better lungs after training and swimming. You'll also notice greater flexibility and increased endurance.
Test the waters
The added resistance the water offers kicks every workout up a notch, providing both an aerobic and anaerobic workout in the process. Continuously treading water hoovers up the calories and creates a non-stop fat-burning workout.
In a league of their own
Water polo combines speed and strength, as well as teamwork and a high level of fitness. It also teaches discipline, fair play, dedication and resilience.
No 'I' in team
One of the best things is the team motivation factor. You are way more likely to come to practice when all your friends are there counting on you.
