The University of Wollongong Underwater Hockey Club was founded in 1991, the year the Aquatic Centre opened. The Club is a stronghold for the sport in Southern NSW and runs an annual 4’s competition, attracting players from Sydney, Newcastle, Canberra and beyond. Since it’s inception, the Club has been represented at every State Championships – no other club has demonstrated this level of commitment. We have played in five State Grand Finals and were crowned State Champions in 1998, 1999 and 2002. The Club has developed a number of State and National representatives despite a modest annual membership. Eleven current or former club members have represented Australia.
Each year the Club fills the ranks of the NSW State Teams, with several Club members returning with medals from National Competitions. Achievement at these levels of competition requires commitment and dedication. Few University Clubs could boast such an impressive record.
