The organisers of the 21st Underwater Hockey Worlds Championships have been working closely with CMAS to explore our options for holding the UWH World Championships as a result of the COVID-19 global pandemic. In line with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) decision, the event organisers have made the difficult decision to postpone the 21st Underwater Hockey Worlds Championships.
Dates will be announced soon, once approved by CMAS.
All registrations will be carried over and our accommodation organiser will be looking to transfer bookings once dates announced. Accommodation queries can be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org
This is an opportunity to get behind countries that couldn’t make it this year (Netherlands and Belgium, we are looking at you) – with the Australian dollar this low, it’s a great time to plan a visit!
We know the international UWH community is one big family. Therefore, we would like to utilise our Facebook and Instagram to share everyone’s isolation training videos/challenges from around the globe.
You all have been tagging us a lot lately and we can’t get enough of it, so we have an idea to bring us all together! Set a challenge and tag our Instagram account @uwhworlds2020 and tag #uwhworlds2020 and let’s fill the world with some positive content!
We will be thinking of all our UWH family in the coming months, please keep well and look after one another. The organisers will continue to work on making this World Championships the best yet!
