Underwater Hockey is team sport, energetic and best of all fun.
It was invented in the 1950's by the British Navy to help keep them fit.
The bats are made of wood and are about 25cm long, they usually have one straight edge for flicking the puck and the back edge is usually curved for hooking the puck. The top players can flick the puck well over 3m and it comes off the bottom enough to go over other players.
The game should be played in a 25m x 15m pool that is between 1.8 - 3 m deep. The game is made of 15-minute halves and a three-minute half time. Each team is permitted 1 60-second time out per half.
The puck is made of lead and is coated with plastic, it weighs about 1.5 kg.
It is a game for all ages and both male AND female.
Everyone can play it without fear of being hurt as it a non-contact sport.
Just come down and play
Like they say. "You'll never never know, if you never never go."
