Water basketball is a hybrid sport that combines elements of traditional basketball and water polo, and it has become a popular recreational activity in many swimming pools. While it is difficult to pinpoint the exact origins of water basketball, the game has been around for several decades and gained popularity in the mid-to-late 20th century. Typically played in shallow pools, water basketball retains many of the basic rules and objectives of standard basketball—like shooting a ball through a hoop to score points—but it incorporates the challenges and dynamics of moving and playing in water. Over the years, water basketball has evolved with specific rules, specialized floating hoops, and even formalized league play in some areas. It's an activity that allows people of all ages to enjoy the physical exercise and team camaraderie of basketball while staying cool in the water.
