Underwater Rugby

Underwater Rugby is a full contact sport played in a deep pool with two teams of players aiming to score goals by placing the ball into the opponent’s basket, located at the bottom of the pool at each end of the playing area.  Imagine having to hold your breath while wrestling for a slippery ball as the pressure from being 3 metres underwater compresses your eardrums. Even for a seasoned track athlete like myself, Underwater Rugby is physically demanding. It is an intense sport that requires technique from rugby, diving and water polo. Players dive to the bottom of the pool (usually at least 3 metres deep) to score in a basket on their opponent’s side.

Underwater Hockey

Underwater Hockey also known as Octopush in UK, is a fast-paced sport played by two teams of up to ten players. 4×4 or 6×6 players in each team are in play at any one time. The remaining four players are continually substituted into play. Big, strong brutes have no advantage over ladies in this game, so mixed teams of boys, girls, men, and women can play against each other. Players must hold their breath while diving to do battle with their opponents. Some players stay underwater for a long time, but deciding when to dive is better. It takes just a few seconds to tackle an opponent and pass the puck to a colleague, and then return to the surface for a well-earned breathe


Underwater has one discipline offered in The World Games: Finswimming. This event is a sport involving swimming with the use of fins (either monofins or bi-fins) on the water’s surface using a snorkel, or underwater with a monofin by holding one’s breath. There are 3 categories of Finswimming in The World Games:is Apnoea Event, Surface Event and Bi-fins Event
