According to this website that was made before the time of the dinosaurs and probably isn’t real, “Underwater rugby is a popular sport in Europe and is played regularly in the United States.” This Geocities page also mentions, “Players may not pull, hold or remove an opponent’s swim suit.” Well that’s just no fun.



According to this Facebook page, which has over 1,000 fans(!), underwater rugby, “Is a sport that has its origin in the physical fitness training of German diving clubs.” But whoever made this facebook page was a lazy dick who copied that from Wikipedia, and we’ll be hornswoggled before acknowledging the Germans invented anything!

According to this YouTube video, underwater rugby is freakin’ insane and you, we, and any normal human being who would ever think to attempt it would drown.

Dive into a game today!
