Underwater rugby is the ultimate test of strength, speed and swimming ability. Two teams of athletes battle it out in a pool to score goals with a weighted ball. Players use their endurance, strength and agility to beat the opposition and place the ball in a metal bucket on the floor of the pool. Underwater rugby is different from other contact sports as the opposition can attack from all sides, propelled by flippers.
