Underwater Hockey is in Shanghai since 2011 and we are looking to expanding the activities to more participants. Join us if you like the sound of it!

We are a very active ground, practice 1-3 times a week with about 15-30 regular players. This meetup is for newbie sessions, which we plan to hold once a month or so.

Underwater Hockey is a non-contact sport in which two teams compete to maneuver a puck across the bottom of a swimming pool into goals. It originated in England in 1954 and was first played as a world championship in Canada in 1980. 

It is a sport that you feel closest to being a fish, wearing fins to chase something IN the water. You glide, you turn, you curl, you dash, and you flip around in the water. 

We are looking for people to come and try with us. You don't have to be a top athlete, it's all about having fun being a fish. If you want to continue playing, we will coach you, will make you lean and strong, and we will bring you to all the tournaments and parties of our fish world :)

Who we are: We are Shanghai Azures, China's biggest underwater hockey club. We have been in international competitions. Check us out at http://shanghai-azures.tumblr.com/

What you need to bring: swimming suits, goggles, caps. If you have fins, snorkels and masks, bring them as well. 

Cost: It is a free event, you only need to pay the pool entrance fee, it will be about 150 RMB for 3+ hours in one of the best pools you can get in Shanghai.

There are usually more regulars who show up at the event than those who signed up here.  So hope to see you in the pool!
