Court layout and pool set-up
The main competition pool and proposed competition venue is an outdoor 50m pool of 2m uniform depth. The playing surface is a fast tiled pool bottom. This pool can accommodate two full size Underwater Hockey Courts. There is another competition dive pool which can be utilised for warming up. Substitution areas would be delineated in-water substitution. Side barriers would be manufactured to suit the pool and heavy goals on the pool bottom.
The UK ‘Sims’ Puck is the selected puck for the championship.
