Octopush - The British Underwater Hockey Championships

Two teams of up to ten players compete, with six players on each team in play at once.

The remaining four players are continually substituted into play from a substitution area, which may be on deck or in the water outside the playing area, depending on tournament rules.

In-play members of both teams are free to swim anywhere in the play area and try to score by manoeuvring the puck into the opponents goal.

Games consist of two halves, typically ten to fifteen minutes (depending on tournament rules; 15 minutes at world championship tournaments) and a short half-time interval.

At half time the two teams switch ends.

There are several pieces of specialist equipment that are required to be worn during matches, some for protective reasons as the sport - with most of the action taking place out of sight and underwater - having a reputation as a hard contact sport.

Underwater Hockey?

Recently, I received assignment to cover a pick up game of underwater hockey; in my mind, I was thinking Underwater Hockey, What the Puck!? I never heard of underwater hockey until that point. I must say, this was an awesome assignment.

Underwater Hockey (UWH), (also called Octopush (mainly in the UK)) 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 pusher.

It originated in England in 1954 when Alan Blake, the founder of the newly formed Southsea Sub-Aqua Club, invented the game he called Octopush as a means of keeping the club's members interested and active over the cold winter months when open-water diving lost its appeal.

Underwater Hockey is now played worldwide, with CMAS as the world governing body. The first Underwater Hockey World Championship was held in Canada in 1980.

Underwater Hockey, Brisbane 2011

My first time playing since State Titles in 2010 so I'm a bit slow but it was a tonne of fun as always! The Australian UWH team recently won the Underwater Hockey World Championships so we definitely have some great players around. Look for a team near you or start one up yourself, it's a great way to improve breath hold and general fitness - but be prepared for some bruises as it can be rough :)

Visiting Shanghai Azures UWH team vs Stirling Underwater Hockey Club (Shanghai) in the 3 meters pool

Selected videos with me (Ricky Ng-Adam) in it. I'm the blue fins, red long swim trunks with gold star, whitecap, black stick playing (poorly) as a right wing forward.

We got completely trashed. I've got no control of the puck, just pushing it in front instead of getting it close to my body, no stamina and no breath hold.

THIS is underwater hockey...

Two teams, with six players on each team in play at once, freediving only. 24 fins, 12 masks, 12 snorkels, 12 sticks, 2 goals...

ONE puck.
