What is Octopush?

Octopush is underwater hockey

The idea of the game is to use the stick to push the puck into the opposing team's goal. There are 10 people in a team, but only six are allowed in the water at one time.


If you want to find a club near you that plays Octopush, then use the Find a Club option on the British Octopush Association website to locate and contact someone from a club near you.


Players wear the basic equipment of a mask, snorkel, fins, and water polo hat. They hold a small stick, about the size of a spatula, in a gloved hand.


  • It was invented in the early 1950s by sub-aqua divers in Southsea who got bored just swimming up and down pool lanes to get fit.
