underwater hockey

every friday at 22.00 and sunday at 15.30 the octopush team members meet at the gurnell swimming pool to play underwater hockey. portsmouth divers founded the sport in the 1950’s. after a quick warm up the teams play a thirty-minute match, changing sides after fifteen minutes. for first timers, the taster-session is free and includes an induction and equipment hire. it has to be booked a day in advance with the octopush organisers, just to make sure the right flipper-size is available. underwater hockey is great fun. the trick is not to swallow too much water. the teams play competitively in europe and the rest of the uk.
