“Splashketball” (Sep, 1948)

Among the latest sports in swimming pools is “splashketball,” a rough-and-tumble game that combines water polo with basketball. Teams of four men each attempt by swimming, jumping and splashing to put the ball through a movable basket. The basket is attached to the goalie by a life preserver, and goalies are allowed to move anywhere in the pool. Excitement comes when a player attempts to make a basket while the goalie tries to avoid him. The players wear caps to identify their teammates.
