What we're about

Underwater Hockey is an exciting sport involving strategy, skill and fitness. Played at the bottom of a pool using snorkeling gear, teams try to get the weighted puck into the opposing goal by using short curved sticks. The sport is relatively low-impact, a good cross-training activity and offers an interesting break from other traditional sports.

Our club (Dublin Underwater Hockey) has been around for 10+ years and members come from all kinds of backgrounds. The games feature a mix of beginners to experienced players and we try to accommodate needs where possible. Both men and women play together and generally we have a ratio of 60-70% male to 30-40% female. The atmosphere is very social and we maintain a high level of respect and safety.

Location: The club plays weekly in the National Aquatic Centre in Blancherstown, Dublin. First session is free, with a pay as you go or monthly rate after. We can connect you with other clubs if you are not based in Dublin.

Equipment: There's a large cache of used equipment available to anyone, especially beginners. Ideally any returning player should bring as much of their own equipment as possible. After a few games most players start purchasing their own equipment. Generally, if you have snorkeling gear, you should bring it. Don't forget your swimsuit and a towel!
