has been played for nearly 40 years and during
that time many changes have come about. The
game was invented in 1954 by Alan Blake, a British
diver and member of the Southsea sub-aqua club,
and by todays standards it was a somewhat primitive
affair. The game's original intention was as
a fun way to keep divers fit during the more
non-active, British winter months. Reflecting
the fun of the game, the divers named it '"octopush",
after the then eight players in a team
small beginnings in Southsea, octopush is now played
around the world. Chief competitors are Great Britain,
France, Holland, Belgium, USA, Canada, New Zealand
and Australia, but the list of countries who play
to some degree amounts to well over 20.
is an exciting and skilful team game that is played
on the bottom of a swimming pool. The aim of the game
is for the players to flick a heavy "squid"
(or puck) around the pool bottom with short wooden
pushers, into the "gulley" (or goal) at
the oppositions end of the pool.

and snorkel, They have a pusher and a glove for the
playing hand and a cap with ear-covers, usually a
colours are shown by the colour of players swimming
trunks or costume. To further define the team during
a game one team wears white caps and plays with white
painted pushers and the other team does the same in
swimming pools can be used for octopush but the ideal
size is 25 metres long by 12 metres wide, and 2 metres
deep. Many pools have a slope, but by changing ends
at half time both teams have the same advantage. Each
team defends a 3 metre wide metal gulley along their
respective end of the pool. When the puck passes over
the metal lip and into the trough behind the gulley,
a goal is scored.
can be up to 10 players in each octopush team, but
only 6 of them can be in the water at any one time.
The remaining 4 wait at the side of the pool to substitute
at any time. Players in a game continuously take a
breath on the surface then descend to move into the
field of play to contribute their part, swimming and
passing, then resurface to take another breath.
length of the players' passes dictates the nature
of a game. For top players to flick the squid from
between 12 and 15 feet is not unusual, often lifting
it several inches off the ground during mid-flight.
An official octopush match lasts 30 minutes with a
short break at half time when the team change pool
a match there are 2 water referees, on either side
of the pool. Like the players, they wear full snorkelling
equipment to enable them to follow the movement of
the game back and forth around the pool.

have banned the American film "Bruce Almighty,''
starring Jim Carrey and Morgan Freeman, from being
shown here in Egypt, saying it infringes on God's
sacredness, the state film censor said Friday.
The 2003 comedy, which also stars Jennifer Aniston,
revolves around Carrey's character - a TV reporter
who complains to God for not helping him. God
played by Freeman introduces himself to Carrey's
character and gives him a shot at being God for
Madkour Thabit, who heads the state-run censorship
body responsible for audio and visual productions,
criticized the movie for featuring "actors
playing the role of God." He also stated that
the name of the movie indicates that there is someone
who can do anything and everything when such traits
belong only to God.
