Yes, you did read that correctly – underwater rugby is a real sport and it’s growing in popularity in the U.K!

At the moment, in the UK, there are five teams playing underwater rugby. We have currently around 70 active players and our numbers are growing fast.  What’s more, around the world, there are thousands of players playing this challenging and competitive sport.

We, The British Underwater Rugby Association (BURA ) , are a new member of The World Underwater Federation (CMAS). Our mission is to promote and develop the sport of underwater rugby in the UK. We intend to do this by collaborating with clubs, individuals, associations, universities, schools, and businesses.

We are always looking for sponsors to help raise the profile of our grassroots clubs, or get our Elite teams to their next international tournament. If you want to help grow this fantastic sport, please get in touch with us via
