The Rules

Below is a complete set of FINA Water Polo Rules. 

Also available is a copy of most current FINA interpretations of Water Polo rules in key game situations to assist both Athletes and Referees.

Water Polo is quite a technical game when it comes to intrepreting infringements, and we'd encourage all involved to understand the most current rulings so that they are best aligned with how the game should be played and Refereed.

The rulings have been prepared for us by FINA list Referee Daniel Flahive, with assistance from Michael Hart. Please download the attached pdf so that you can read it in full.
