Inner Tube Water Polo

Home > New York > Sport
Published January 10th 2011
If you like water polo and lazy rivers, meet your new favorite sport - Inner Tube Water Polo. Yeah, that's a real thing.

Organized through New York City Sports Club, which also provides more traditional leagues for basketball and kickball, Inner Tube Water Polo is a variation on the game of water polo, naturally, but requires no experience to play and enjoy.

Sitting in inflatable inner tubes, players work together to score goals by throwing a ball into the net of the opposing team. And you're allowed to flip players out of their tube when they have the ball, but that means, of course, that they can flip you, too.

Sound like fun? It is, but it's also great exercise. Check out all the movement for yourself here.

Registration ends for the league winter, which plays on Sundays on the Lower East Side, on Jan. 17, or until sold out, with games starting on Jan. 23. It costs $100 a person to play, and teams can consist of 10-14 players, including at least four women. You can sign up as a team, or as a free agent (which isn't as glamorous as that sounds).

After all the action, change out of your bathing suit and head to Slainte for the post-game party - that's where the social in NYC Social Sports Club comes into play.
