In 2013, 17 horses drowned in international water polo competition. This was the highest equine death toll since 1972, when 28 horses died in a single match (the so-called "death derby": Ecuador vs Trinidad and Tobago on July 23, 1972). It is very hard for horses to breathe underwater, even when they are given snorkels.
For top standard water polo matches the water has to be a minimum of 1.8 meters
it depend on the pool but it can be quite deep
Water polo is a game played in a swimming pool, with six players from each team in the pool at once, one being a goalie. For every goal the shooter's team is awarded one point, and the goals are similar to soccer goals, but they float on the water and are a little smaller. There is one ball, which floats in the water, and if you lean on it too hard it'll go under water and it becomes the other team's ball. There are penalties, etc., but I won't go into that too much. There are penalties if you touch another player (on the opposing team) on the head, if you put the ball under, if you attack the goalie, and yeah, you pretty much get the idea. There are 4 quarters in a game, and to keep yourself afloat you have to be able to tread water, which can get tiring at first, but when you get used to it you should be fine. Some people call this 'egg-beater' because your legs move in a way that makes them look like egg-beaters. Good luck to anyone beginning water polo or if you're just generally interested in the sport.
two referees, and the coaches of course
YES! water polo is intense.You are playing probably the most toughest and roughest game ever invented. You like many others will feel this intensity when you play. Water polo is the most intense game anyone will ever play.

Yes, you can bring a soccer ball on a plane as long as it goes through passenger security checkpoint X-ray machine. Additionally, make sure it doesn't go over your luggage limit as a carry on.
it is when someone is 'ejected' from the pool for 20 seconds
no, nor touch the bottom of the pool or the water polo goals, this will lead to a foul. when you swim for the ball at the start, you must be out 2 meters, not touching the sides.

There is no official report on the amount of deaths caused by water polo, but it is considered one of the most dangerous sports. Drowning and injuries have caused players to die. It has even been called the most dangerous high school sport.
at least one for each team
water polo started as a version of rugby football that was played in British lakes and rivers in the late 19th century with a ball made of Indian rubber. The name comes from the Balti word 'pulu' meaning ball.
It was a demonstration of strength and swimming skill and was often a feature of county fairs and festivals.
Do you learn more from wins or losses? And why?
What inspired you to do tennis? Why not any other sport?
Just take general ideas and make them into questions!
Hope i helpd :)
There are no points in water polo, the aim is to score goals as in football (or soccer)
It all depends on the arrangement the professional player makes with his patron. Several things goes into account: location, handicap, whether the patron provides the horses or the pro does, indoor or outdoor leagues, history with the patron, if he's paid per game or per month, if there are lessons in addition to the games, etc.
Hope this helps!
In a pool.
Yes, I am a diver and believe me YOU NEED A CUP. Especially if you are a beginner you are going to need protection for your testicles. The best way to wear it is if you wear a speedo wear two speedos and put the cup inbetween. If you wear a jammer, first put on a speedo, then put on a jockstrap and put the cup inbetween. Then just put your jammer on over it. If you really don't care what you look like than put on compression shorts then a cup the the jammer and on the outside put on a jockstrap. The cup that I like best is the Nutty Buddy it protects and supports your balls.
