Underwater rugby is a fast paced, three-dimensional team sport where players jostle underwater to get the ball into a basket at the bottom of the pool. Underwater rugby is traditionally played in a 5m deep pool, however, UNSW also play in a 2m and 4m deep pool.
Each team has 6 players in the water: 2 forwards, 2 defenders and 2 goalies. Each player wears a mask, snorkel and fins.
The club offers social and competitive games, and skilled players have the opportunity to play for the Australian team at the World Championships every 4 years. Our UNSW Whales A team is currently ranked #1 in Australia.
Membership is open to both UNSW students and non-students
