About Underwater Hockey

Underwater Hockey, as its name suggests, is a team sport where players push a puck along the bottom of a pool with the goal of scoring at their opposing teams end. Players wear snorkel gear and come up for air at timed intervals. Matches last 10 minutes. The Irish Underwater Hockey League (IUWHL) is affiliated with Comhairle Fo Thuinn (Diving Ireland).
