We like nothing better than seeing new faces joining in with the fun. If you fancy trying out Underwater Hockey, then have a read of our frequently asked questions and contact Kevin if you have any further questions.
When do you play?
We play twice a week on Sundays and Tuesdays between 21.00 and 22.00. For more information go here
I would like to try it out. Who do I contact?
Great decision! Please contact Kevin and let him know when you fancy coming to play.
I have played Underwater Hockey before. Can I come and play?
Sure you can! Please contact Kevin and let him know which club night you would like to attend. Don't worry if you don't still have all the gear. We have plenty of spare kit that you can borrow.
How much does it cost?
New players get to play FREE for a whole calendar month. After that, if you decide to play regularly then you can either pay £6 a session, or £25 a month for all sessions. Monthly payments are paid via Direct Debt.
Club members that wish to attend tournaments in the UK will also need to become a member of the BOA will cost £30 annually. After that, if you are paying monthly, the BOA membership renewal will be paid for by the club.
The BOA membership page can be found here.
I don't have any equipment. Can I still play?
Of course you can. If you decide to come and play, our members have enough spare kit between them to help you get in the game. See our kit guide to get an idea of the equipment a player needs.
Can women play?
Absolutely! We already have several ladies that regularly play for the club, and we are always looking for more.
Is there an age limit?
Anyone eighteen years and over can come and play. We currently have a broad range of players aging from teenagers to over seventy! So age is irrelevant!
My children would love to try Underwater Hockey, who do I contact?
St Albans also has a junior team. Please contact Kevin and he will point you in the right direction.
I have never played before. What do I need to bring with me?
Don't worry about equipment, we have plenty of spare kit that can be borrowed to get you started.
We do recommend that you bring the following:
- Swimming briefs/trunks/jammers for men, swimming suit for ladies.
- Shower gel/shampoo for the showers.
- A pound coin for the lockers. (You get it back!)
How will other players know if I'm new to the game?
New players that have never played before will be given a yellow or blue stick. This means that other players won't tackle as aggressively as they normally would. It gives new players time with the puck and allows them to get a feel for the game.
I have had a go and love it! How do I become a member?
Fantastic, we knew you would! Just fill in our new player form for our records. If you decide to pay monthly, then we will need you to setup a Direct Debt to the club account.
Does the club participate in any tournaments?
We play in Nautilus every year that is held in Sheffield and the BOA Nationals that are held in Leeds and Sheffield. There are regular friendly matches with some of the other local clubs. If we get enough interest from our members, then we also play in friendly competitions abroad in Italy, Czech Republic and Germany.
