Underwater what? is the most common question a player can hear when he/she mentions the name of this still too unknown sport. Underwater hockey (UWH) is a fast-moving sport played on swimming pool bottoms across the World. Discover UWH through is last annual US National tournament held in July 2008 in Gainesville, Florida. Still think it is a joke? Well, you might want to tell the over 180 players who are taking it seriously and showed up from all over the United States. For the players, National 2008 represents the 1st well attended women division, the 1st symposium and the 1st photobook. And if you get that book you are sure to bring up a great topic of conversation and to help the sport development. So gear on, give it a try, and see you at the bottom!
I started playing underwater hockey in March 2001 in Gainesville, FL, then moved and played in Boston, and now in the Washington, DC area. As a player and a diver I am really happy with the digital underwater photography development. I can finally capture the best moments of my favorite hobbies.
