A rich history
Underwaterhockey tournaments in Europe haven’t been such a natural display of the sport as we might think. To be more exact: the first international tournament was held in Breda. Then it didn’t carry the name of the club yet, and there weren’t all the sophisticated ways to share information as there are today.
This first international tournament didn’t had any name, it was just called ‘international underwaterhockey tournament’. Quite simple actually.
After this there were multiple other big international tournaments: ‘the Anglo-Dutch tournament’ and the ‘Speedo Trophy’ (which you can still admire at the Argonauta clubhouse).
Luckily the sport spread wildly and we can now enjoy international tournaments in almost every country that houses underwaterhockey clubs.
