Event Overview

Introduction : Underwater Hockey for the first time in India right here in Pune. Invented in the year 1954, Octopush is now played globally as a competitive sport with national teams around the world participating in the World Underwater Hockey Championship. Kshitij Mittal, our PADI Instructor at Finkick, took a liking to this sport during his stint in the United Kingdom and has taken to impart similar experience of the sport here in Pune. 10 players each side (5 in-water, 5 substitutes) don the fins, mask and snorkel to hold their breath and battle underwater in order to “push” the puck into the other person’s goal. We guarantee it will take your breath away.
You are welcome to join other participants for a game of Octopush at our facility and have a first-hand experience of this novel and exciting sport. It is our endeavor to polpularise this relatively unknown water sport and even make a mark at an upcoming international tournament. Sneak Peek into the Session :
A typical session starts with briefing of the game with a video followed by a training session consisting of snorkeling, free diving and practice run of the game. This is followed by 2 x 10 minutes halves with a 5 minutes break between the halves.
