We have just launched an new underwater hockey club at Forest Hill Pools and I would like to offer BC readers the chance to have a free have-a-go session at 7.15pm, Friday 10th January 2014. Meet in the lobby of Forest Hill Pools. You can just come along but if possible please email me james@bayley.me.uk with your shoe size so I can confirm your place and sort out kit for you.

Underwater hockey is played with a lead puck and a short stick; swimmers wear a mask, snorkel and fins. We are set up to train absolute beginners and supply all the kit for the session. It has all the virtues of swimming to keep fit but is actually fun! Here is a promo video.

The men and women is this video are really good but don't worry, we are not! The youngest member of our club is 12 and the oldest 67 and we all play in the same game!
