Water Polo has a long exciting history inspired by rugby, swimming and wrestling…Today, it is a team sport with six players per team and a goalkeeper. A game consists of 4 quarters, each quarter being 8 minutes in length. Depending on the level, there are one or two judges. It is a fast game, with lots of action.
Shot clocks in each corner indicate the number of seconds remaining before a team will lose possession of the ball, the offensive team has 30 seconds to score.

Effective March 1st, 2019, there is an amendment to the existing FINA water polo rules. We offer easy to use upgrade kits for existing field lines and color coding on referee´s catwalk.
As for LEN, a final decision will be taken by LEN technical WP committee meeting in January and the LEN Cup will in that case only apply these rules from next season starting August 2019.
Our water polo fields are produced pursuant to international FINA rules, but most importantly according to customer needs. The popular Malmsten professional water polo goal is foldable and a stable.
