DEVELOPMENT AND HISTORY

--Are you interested in who invented water basketball? Slovenians who else. Tomaž Slavec and Matjaž Codec from Kranj had already in 1996 developed and patented a special basket ball and wrote rules of the game. Which instantly got played by their friends. Until then, especially in Italy, have already been played two slightly different versions Water basketball - the first was a classic piece with a board attached to the edge of the pool and the other is a hoop floating on the water. Both have their own deficiencies, as the players hit the edge of the pool or they may find difficult to hit the basket, which would rocked back and forth. The basket without table at the top of the stand, which stands firmly on the bottom of the pool, was a genius solution, thus turning water basketball from the fun children's games into a real sport. --
