Possibly the world's deepest Underwater Hockey ... erm... flick..?

World's deepest Underwater Hockey Flick Nemo 33

Peter Short demonstrates what it would look like playing Octopush at 34.5m ( 113ft ) on a diving trip to Nemo 33 - the world's deepest indoor swimming pool in Brussels with Scubanaught Dive Club.

Having contacted the adjudicators at Guinness World Records - it appears that due to not wearing your regulation polo cap your record attempt was rejected. Sorry Peter.

Nath and Mike proudly don their new Nottingham Octopush T-shirts and hold aloft an Olympic Torch at a promotional event in Nottingham ( they weren't trusted with a lit one... ) Surrounded by Bouncy Castles and Scubanaught's very own inflatable, word of NOC soon got around and we look forward to welcoming our 'press ganged' newbies to sessions in the near future!

Nottingham get bronze at Batley!

Underwater Hockey (Octopush) in nottingham

Team NOC claimed their first ever piece of silverware, finishing 3rd at the Batley tournament.

Alas the squad was desimated with players dropping like flies. However Nath, Jacqui and Tim soldiered on, and with the assistance of several Batley players, saw off competition against Liverpool Uni, Islington and NEMOC to claim their bronze medals.

Attentions now turn towards the East Midlands Challenge before Nautilus in November when Nottingham will be looking to gain promotion out of division Five.




February 2013

National preliminaries 2013

Here at NOC we love a challenge and teaming up with players from Mansfield, we sent a strong team all the way to Crawley. Although we did not win a match we held all teams to single figures.

And on the plus side, half the entry fee was refunded for not going through...
( Every cloud... )
