What we're about

Wanting to try something new for 2019….?

Have you got what it takes to play Underwater hockey? Many of the girls and boys in Nottingham certainly have!

Underwater hockey…?! You ask – never heard of it! Well maybe you should – it is a fast growing sport already big in Australia, New Zealand, South America and Europe – so much so it is destined to realms of Olympic status …. and they are recruiting!

More commonly known as Octopush ( try saying that after a few snorkel shots of rum ), is played with a puck (similar to that of ice hockey ) at the bottom of the pool. Players wear fins for speed, snorkels to breathe and follow the game on the surface and shortened sticks to control and flick the puck into the goals at either end of the pool. It’s fast, dynamic, relies on skill and team participation. Everyone has a position - forwards, backs and midfields. We have honed strategies and cunning team tactics. “We train hard, we train fast, we drink beer…” boasts one of our players who also claimed to be able to down a pint of Guinness without even pausing for breath.

Being a non-contact sport the teams are mixed. “We have 8stone girls that can outwit and manoeuvre 18stone burly blokes. We have pensioners that can swim the length of the pool without coming up for air. Any age, any gender, we cater for all!

So, have you got what it takes to remain calm under pressure….? Able to read all this again whilst holding your breath – and we think you have…!

All abilities welcome - from total beginners to Olympic athletes....
( our friendly group will show you what to do )
