All About Mini-Polo

Mini-polo is a beginner’s version of water polo, a fun, high energy ball game for the swimming pool.

Mini-polo! is a smaller, more basic game than water polo and it's great for players up to 11 yeras old.

It will teach you the basics and get you ready for a full game of water polo.

The rules are very basic - you just need a ball and a pool. You can use any space of water and turn it into a fun water ball game.

Use any small ball which is waterproof and floats. If there are no goals then use floats, cones or plastic bottles filled with water.

If the pool is shallow, or if some of the players can't swim, then you can stand up to play.

Even if one of the players isn't happy in the pool you can pass them the ball on the side
