Underwater rugby Underwater Rugby (UWR) is a quite young sport that has its origin in the physical fitness training of German diving clubs and has little in common with “normal” Rugby except for the name. It is played in a pool with a depth of 3.5m to 5m and the goals are at the bottom of the pool. Two teams, each with six players, try to score a goal by sending the slightly negatively buoyant ball into the opponents’ goal. It is a fast and exhausting game therefore the subs replace their players on the fly.
