    Not quite as 'out there' as some of these that have been posted, but I've played both waterpolo (no, it doesn't involve horses in water! And Prince William played it at university) and I played Korfball once (a bit like basketball and netball, but more weird). There was also an octopush society at my uni! (like hockey but underwater)

    I was so thinking I would love to get involved in this, but it looks quite homosexual, why are they shoving their hands down one another's pants?

    A fine British sport for all the family. Just try not to break any bones.
