Description du livre Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. État : New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Water Polo The game of water polo has perhaps done more during recent years to popularize and to cause an interest to he taken in swimming than any other branch of aquatic sport. It is essentially a game for swimmers, and one that affords ample opportunity for the exhibition of skill and the development of staying power. Its practice tends to improve the speed of all those who participate in the pastime, as well as to inculcate in the minds of its followers good ideas as to the best methods of obtaining command over themselves in the water. In long-distance swims only one style of swimming is, as a rule, adopted, but in water polo the rapid changes of position which are necessary compel players to constantly alter their style. This is in itself a beneficial phase of the game, and one which teaches a swimmer how complete may become his power. It was not for this reason, as may be easily imagined, that the game was first promoted, but merely for the purpose of providing something new and attractive in aquatic sports; and with this view, on May 12, 1870, a committee was appointed by the London Swimming Association, to draw up a code of rules for the management of the game of foot ball in the water. Prior to 1670, various attempts were made by individual swimmers to arrange some kind of ball game in the water, and at many entertainments and swimming matches what was termed water hand ball was played, the sides usually consisting of not more than three players. There were a few matches played in 1876, but it is difficult to obtain definite particulars, as but few of them were reported. The Rowing Club at Bournemouth, England, played in that year, and it is interesting to note that these almost prehistoric games were played at a time when most of the present exponents were in the nursery or at school.
