Underwater Rugby

Team History

The underwater rugby team from Boston started in Quincy, Massachusetts out of the South Shore Neptunes' Skin Diving Club in the early 1980's.  Dive club members began playing underwater hockey and underwater rugby to stay in shape during the winter months.  Underwater rugby was played at the time with a volleyball filled with salt water and two 5 gallon plastic pails weighted with 5 pound dive weights as the ball and goal.


When the internet became popular, the team learned there was another rugby team in Baltimore, Maryland that also played underwater rugby and a match was set up between the two teams.   This was the first underwater rugby competition in the United States.
