Start time 4:00 PM

Give it a Go - Underwater Hockey

This event is cancelled due to the Queensland Government lockdown directive.

Ever heard of Octopush? Maybe not...well it's Underwater Hockey! The British Navy invented underwater hockey in the 1950’s to keep their divers fit and to improve their ability to move and work efficiently under water. The game came to Australia shortly after and has evolved into a fast dynamic sport played around the world. Now is your chance to give this unique sport a go thanks to the Brisbane Barracudas!

Venue: Brisbane Aquatic Centre, Sleeman Sports Complex
Who: Adults (able to swim) and children (10 years or older who can swim and must have guardian who able to swim).
Cost: Free
Time: 4.00pm - 6.00pm

What to bring:

  • Appropriate swimming attire (baggy clothing will slow you down!)
  • Water bottle 
  • If you have it - snorkel, mask and flippers/fins.
 

Registration: Click this link to register: www.buwh.com.au

What can I expect?

Underwater hockey (UWH) can be played by anyone who is able to swim and use a snorkel and mask. UWH is played all around the world and is enjoyed equally by male and female players of all ages. It is a non-contact sport and is because it is played in the water there is little or no stress on your joints when compared to land-based sports. Mixed teams are common in UWH and size is not really an advantage when agility, speed and the ability to play well in a team are the best attributes of a good Underwater Hockey player.
