Rus­sian team of Under­wa­ter Rugby from St.Petersburg. Under water rugby was inven­ted in Köln, Ger­many 1961 and became pop­u­lar in the Nor­dic coun­tries under the name, UW-Polo. Before the first Cham­pi­on­ship in 1978 the rules had to be merged (dif­fer­ent num­ber of play­ers, 4 vs. 8, play­ing above the sur­face, etc). The game has since then evolved and now involved 13 counties at the latest championship.
