PUS Hockey:

PUS Hockey is the Polytechnic Sports Clubs (PUS) hockey section. Our team is mainly comprised of polytechnic students and alumni. We play in the Men's 3rd Division and have an outstanding team spirit. Try-outs to join the team are held every autumn. If you feel you are no longer quite as fast as Teemu Selänne was in his younger days, no problem: few of us were, either, until we got accepted to the team. Most important is the feeling of camaraderie.

Finnish baseball


Pesäpallo, the variant of baseball that is the national sport of Finland, is a fast-paced and complex sport whose popularity is currently increasing, especially in the Helsinki region.

OtaKoppi organises pesäpallo activities for players at all levels; beginners are also welcome. Summer games are its core activity and are played from early May to mid-September. In summer pesäpallo sessions, players first work on their basic skills and then begin to play informal games. The summer practices and games are cost free, and new players are warmly invited. Game equipment is also provided at practices to anyone without it.

OtaKoppi includes competitive play. In summer the OtaKoppi men's team played a regional series, and the mixed team participated in the informal Helsinki-area fitness pesäpallo series. Pesäpallo training in the winter is also offered by OtaKoppi when possible.
