Football was a casual game with few rules when it was first played. Often, the men of one village played against the men of another village with the playing area stretching between the two villages. The ball was often nothing more than an animal bladder and the chances of it lasting the whole game were fairly remote. As the game developed, balls were manufactured from leather but every village made balls of different sizes and shapes. It was only in the last century that the size of the ball was agreed throughout the country. As the ball became standardized, so did the rules. The modern football was not invented so much as developed over more than a century. Football's now are much lighter than previously and so its much better to curl the ball with a a shot. In 1863 when England had written the rules for Football the ball specification was listed.

The water polo ball was invented by the same people that invented the game itself, they were British people laying in lakes and rivers. The ball wouldn't have been a water polo ball as such, it may have been a football, but as soon as it was used for that purpose, it became a water polo ball.

Nobody invented it - the rules are much the same as men's Gaelic Football. Main difference is that Ladies are allowed to pick the ball off the ground.

Football is often claimed to have been invented in 1673 in England, but in China, they have been playing a primitive version since 500 BC. It was called tsu' chu, meaning 'kick-ball'. The idea was to score at opposite ends without touching the leather ball.
