Underwater hockey – Have you ever tried it ?

The History of Hockey Sport 

Hockey is one of the most common games, with an interesting antagonism, the two teams use sticks to reach the opponent’s target without contacting any of the body. This game involves players with a good technique and exceptional observation and dedication to succeed with their teammates.

Hockey is played on a variety of terrains, and the most common and recognizable is the picture of athletes who both skate and play exceptionally skillful hockey. Ice hockey is commonly played in countries where the atmosphere is cold enough to make ice dense, smooth, large, and secure. And it’s with the majestic picture of ice hockey that attracts a lot of people and has since expanded this sport around the world.

Underwater Hockey

Underwater hockey is born quite unintentionally in circumstances that have little to do with sport

The number was that in 1950, the British Navy also showed a means of training and playing water hockey in the water to help divers develop their mobility and their successful underwater missions. In 1954, underwater hockey (also known as Octopush) was formally considered a sport after Alan Blake created his first Southsea Sub-Aqua club in England.

Underwater hockey was later greeted with excitement by a harmonious blend of swimming and diving skills, as well as a mixed rivalry between ice hockey and basketball. Both men and women will take part in this subject as long as they have strong endurance against the task of keeping their breath underwater for a certain amount of time. 

To play underwater hockey, an athlete has to be a good swimmer, able to plunge intensely and hang on as long as possible. Therefore, besides competing to score in the opponent’s target, this is also a deep-diving, long-diver swimming game that can dive longer to add victory to their party.
