Christchurch Underwater Hockey Club
Underwater Hockey is a great sport if you love to swim, and since you play on the bottom of the pool it is a great team sport too. Two teams of six players use small sticks to push a puck into the opposition’s goal bin. Christchurch Underwater Hockey is open to players of all levels, with both beginner and experienced leagues.
What to bring: togs and towel, and if you have it bring gear such as a mask, snorkel and fins. The club has gear to borrow if you need it, just make sure to turn up early to get fitted.
First session is free - come have a go!
