Hammerheads Underwater Rugby practice - Wednesdays
Join us for our weekly UWR practice! We have all the equipment that you need for a try-out. Just let us know and jump with us into the water - we welcome all levels (though you should be able to swim and be comfortable with the idea of swimming under the water - but you don't need to be an expert diver). Ladies and gents are equally welcome - we are co-ed :) Contact Daniel or Rolexi at [masked] ~Wednesday~ 7.30 – 9.30 p.m. JFK (John F.

What we're about

We are a competitive Underwater Rugby (UWR) team and we invite you to join us for an exciting practice!

Underwater what? Underwater rugby is probably the most exciting activity you may have ever done. The only 3D sport (apart from Harry Potter’s Quidditch), great endurance, fast, strategic, and above all: extreme fun! Imagine a 13ft-deep pool, 2 baskets on the bottom of each side. Two teams, equipped with fins, mask&snorkel, and a salt-water filled ball. We hold our breath when playing at 3, 5, 13 feet below the surface and pass the ball standing on our heads, swimming sideways and swirling around. Yes, we can tackle the person who carries the ball. But no, no one ever drowned in the 60 years the sport has been around. Our mixed teams welcome girlz and boyz.

We have all the equipment you need if you want to try - so just send us a quick line and new experiences await - we promise!
