What kind of equipment do I need to play water polo?

Water Polo Gear

Water polo is a popular sport, especially in certain colleges. If you are interested in getting started, you will need the following water polo equipment and items :

Swimsuit- A durable, competitive swimsuit is needed for water polo. Try Speedo or TYR.

Helmet- Water polo players wear a tight fitting helmet that protects the head while maintaining the hydrodynamic quality of a swim cap. TYR makes a great, inexpensive water polo helmet.

Ball- Mikasa is a popular and trusted brand. Different sizes are available, but you will want to practice with either a men's or women's training ball.

Goal- A water polo goal will cost into the thousands, so it is best to practice somewhere that can provide one.
