Octopush, or as it is better known Underwater Hockey, is a very physical and fun sport. It comprises of two teams the aim being to manoeuvre a puck accross the width or length of the swimming pool floor, underwater, in an attempt to score a goal in the opposing teams goal. The puck is propelled by small hand held bats or hockey stick.
The club plays Octopush on the last Thursday of each month as a means of interest and fitness. If you fancy joining in this fun sport thats all you need are mask, finns and snorkel, be a reasonable swimmer and be able to hold your breath for short periods of time the rest is just having fun. Please get in touch or come along to Ebbw Vale Swimming pool on a Thursday Evening 19:15 for 19:30 start, last Thursday of the month to join in the fun.
The club welcomes anyone to attend a try dive night to experience the wonders of breathing underwater. The try dive is for anyone (14yrs and over) to come along to our club and for a small fee (£10) you can experience what it is like to be weightless and the wonderful feeling of breathing underwater.
