The Underwater Torpedo League is a fast-growing, team sports league based in Carlsbad, CA. The games consists of two 5-person teams who square off against each other in the deep end of a pool while attempting to score the rubber torpedo into the opposing team’s goal. To defend, players can tackle opponents or steal the torpedo from their opponent – think of it as hockey or football but played underwater. The UTL was founded in 2017 by Prime Hall, a United States Military Veteran who served as a water survival instructor and Special Operations Marine Raider. Hall is deeply passionate about helping others improve their water confidence and overall quality of life through the Underwater Torpedo League. Hall started the Underwater Torpedo League to help train high-level professionals in the pool to achieve their fitness goals. The UTL is broken up into 3 subsidiaries: UTL League, UTL Elite and UTL Media.
