Welcome from Sawston Piranhas

We are a friendly group of players based at Sawston, just south of Cambridge. We play octopush regularly at two pools near Cambridge, and occasionally travel to other clubs or tournaments. We welcome players of all ages and abilities and encourage everybody to play to the level that they enjoy or find challenging. You can join us regularly, play a casual game or two, or just try the sport. 

First time or undecided?

Octopush (underwater hockey or UWH) is a team game that brings another way of enjoying your time in the pool. You can find a quick description of the game here About UWH/Octopush and a web search for "UWH videos" will find many videos of game play and trick shots.

Play a few games and you'll probably find that it increases your fitness and confidence in and under the water. The easiest way to see if it suits you is to try it - we offer a free taster session and free loan of kit if given a few days' warning.

Already playing?

Turn up to a session if you want but perhaps contact us to pre-register first, especially if you're travelling a long way or need to borrow kit. We get more playing time and better game play if we know who's coming.

There are contact details below, and more on our Contacts page.

Hope to see you soon,
Sawston Piranhas
