Water Polo Insurance
Water Polo as a sport is thought to have originated in Scotland as a sort of ‘water rugby’. It is a team watersport, each match consists of two teams of 6 outfield players and 1 goalkeeper. Matches are extremely strenuous and so players need high levels of endurance and stamina. As a sport it is fairly aggressive and fouls are committed on a regular basis. Head and shoulder injuries are common, these are usually caused by elbows or the ball itself.
Men’s water polo was introduced to the Olympics in 1900 in Paris and has been a feature of every Olympic Games since then.

More About Water Polo
Arguably water polo’s most famous match was at the 1956 Summer Olympics, in the semi final Hungary played the Soviet Union. Hungary won the game 4-0 but the match was called off with a minute to go due to a Soviet player punching a Hungarian player. That year was the year of the Hungarian revolution. The revolution was crushed by the Soviet Army so it made the match more than just a game for the Hungarians.
