Underwater hockey, a team sport played with sticks and a lead puck at the bottom of a swimming pool, is also known as the supreme anaerobic game due to the fact that players use snorkels to breathe on the water's surface before diving to join the action. Invented in the UK in the 1950s, it is now played in over thirty countries worldwide.
The Stirling Underwater Hockey Club (SUHC) was established in 2004 with the
purposes of introducing and promoting this exciting game in Singapore.
In the past seven years, SUHC has engaged its UWH neighbors Australia, Japan, New Zealand and the Philippines in friendly competition, topping things off by hosting the first Asian Underwater Hockey Championships (the AUHCs) in 2007 here in Singapore.
We invite all sports enthusiasts, fitness buffs, and anyone who simply loves to
play in the water to come join us for our twice-weekly games. Experienced
players are on-hand to teach the basics to new players and anyone interested in
trying out this exciting team sport
