Description

 

nderwater hockey (also known as octopush) is a deceptively simple sport featuring a puck weighing 42 to 49 ounces similar to the one used in ice hockey. Two teams, each with six active players and four more on the bench, attempt to "flick" the puck into the opponents’ 10-foot-wide goal using one-foot-long wooden sticks. The playing area is 40 – 49.5 feet wide and 69 – 82.5 feet long. Octopush derives its name from the era when the sport was played with eight players to a team.
 
There's just one catch - you have to hold your breath!
 
It's a fun, social sport, where almost everyone joins as a beginner. We supply all the kit you just need your swimsuit and a towel.
