Unique Water Sport Earns Sponsorship from Pegler Yorkshire

A unique water sport has secured sponsorship from Pegler Yorkshire – a perfect watery partnership!

Underwater Hockey, also referred to as Octopush, has been around since the 1950’s but has gathered more and more followers as it grows in stature across the globe, and the UK, with 105 clubs now formed across England, Scotland and Wales.

“We are delighted to support this emerging sport and also our employee, Glenn Schofield, who has turned his excellent training skills in his day job, as a Technical Training Support Manager, into coaching some of the leading Octopush players in Great Britain,” said Phill Jackson Marketing and Business Development director Pegler Yorkshire. “We take our corporate responsibility seriously not only is it imperative that we support ongoing innovation within the industry but in society as a whole and are pleased to be able to play a part in helping this innovative sport grow and develop.”

Having been a player for many years, Glenn has enjoyed recent coaching successes at the World Championships in Castlellon de la Plana, Spain with the U23’s ladies team and at two previous World Championships with the GB Men’s Master securing bronze position. 

Pegler Yorkshire has provided sponsorship for out of water kit for the U19’s and U23’s Ladies and mens teams.  Glenn Schofield commented:  “Sponsorship is of paramount importance to allow our teams to enter national and international competitions and develop their skills and confidence as individuals and as a team.  Our thanks go to Pegler Yorkshire for its support and we look forward to delivering great results in the future.”

The sport, which developed as a way of keeping scuba divers fit in the winter months, enjoys greater popularity in other parts of the world with children in New Zealand being taught it at school and France’s national squad funded by the Government.

Glenn concluded; “It’s a fast paced sport that requires speed, dexterity and a healthy dose of grit and determination. More and more people are discovering the fun and health benefits it can bring”.

The GB teams train at Loughborough and Leeds but local clubs are located across the country. Further information can be found at http://www.gbuwh.co.uk/.
