It is quite a rough sport with a lot of shoving and pushing although drowning opponents by pushing them underwater is not permissible! Most teams at the higher level seem to consist of scarily muscular people; strength and endurance are important in a game which lasts four quarters of eight minutes. In six feet of water you are required to swim all of the time! It is a contact sport and although 20-second penalties are imposed for foul play, handbags are occasionally swung.

Many top players are either full-time or part-time professional as they need around 2˝ hours of training per day, which includes quite a lot of weight training, along with swimming.
