What is Underwater Hockey?

Underwater Hockey (UWH), is a globally played limited-contact sport in which two teams compete to manoeuvre a puck across the bottom of a swimming pool into the opposing team’s goal by propelling it with a hockey stick (bat).

For the love of sports and water!

UWH is unique in that it allows people who loves both team sports and water, an environment to have a good workout and enjoy themselves.The feel of gliding underwater with fins and actively engaging in competitive play is an experience like none other. 
A key challenge of the game is that players are not able to use breathing devices such as scuba gear whilst playing, they must hold their breath. The game originated in England in 1954. Underwater hockey is now played worldwide, with the Confédération Mondiale des Activités Subaquatiques, abbreviated CMAS, as the world governing body.
