Flippaball is a water sport, great for building teamwork skills and water confidence. It is similar to waterpolo however children are allowed to touch the bottom of the pool. It is a brilliant sport for children who are wishing to get into waterpolo later on. There are 6 children in the pool at a time, 5 field players and one goalie. The children are challenged by only being allowed to touch the ball with one hand at a time and not being able to walk with it – they can however, swim with the ball. If you would be interested in your child being involved, read through more of the below information.
