Want to know how to play hockey on water?
Drop by the Comox Valley Aquatic Centre tonight and find out during a demonstration of SUPball.
With Stand-Up Paddling (SUP) one of the fastest growing sports in the world, the game of hockey on water has been played outdoors for some time. But local league organizers Stuart and Andrew Robinson note theirs is the first indoor league in the world.
Neophytes must first learn how to stand-up paddle, then they can learn to get the hang of swatting a volleyball with the paddle into a hockey-size net. It’s great for physical fitness, and safe as players do not go near the edge of the pool.
The Robinsons invite those 16 years and over to drop by the pool at 8 p.m. tonight to learn more.
