"FOURS / 4's
Teams were making waves at FINA, the smaller goals, the shorter and narrower pitch without the single referee breathing down their necks.
The small pitch is anchored in the middle of the men's pool and is quickly erected and decommissioned, making it the perfect venue for the sport worldwide, whether you have a pool, a beach, a river or a lake.
The game is fast, just three field players and a goalkeeper. The possession time is 20 seconds and there are two halves of 10 minutes' actual time.
Substitutions are frequent, although the introduction of flying subs, as recently introduced to sevens water polo, would make the attacks faster and more dynamic.
Trials in 2019 displayed various styles with some attacking quickly and others still playing the other game, dropping legs when goals were scored instead of crashing back on defence.
