On behalf of the CMAS Underwater Hockey Commission I welcome you to the 2006 World Championships web site. In 2006, these championships were the largest single underwater hockey event ever staged and we had 17 countries competing. It was great to see underwater hockey return to its birthplace and be celebrated by so many people from all over the world.
Underwater hockey prides itself on the reuniting of old friends and the creation of new friendships for the future. As always the competition has been played in the true spirit of fair play and respect for all involved as this is the unwritten code of underwater hockey.
This web site has been designed in the 3 official languages of CMAS and contains all the information you will need about this tournament. Please enjoy the site and we look forward to seeing you at future events.
Yours in Hockey,
Graham Henderson, World Tournament Director
