Do you fancy learning how to play canoe polo?
Does your canoe club fancy trying canoe polo?
Do you already play and want an extra chance to practice?
Polo is a kayaking game for two teams where each team of 5 tries to throw a ball into the opposing team’s net, whilst avoiding being rammed, pushed in, or paddled over. Polo combines paddling and ball handling skills with an exciting contact team game, promoting teamwork, general canoeing skills, and a range of other techniques unique to the sport. More generally though, it’s just great fun!

Thursday evenings from June to end of August 2017 6.00 to 8pm at Pinkston Watersports.
This is the first year offering these sessions and the price is £2 per person including access to changing rooms and showers.

Do you fancy learning how to play canoe polo?
Does your canoe club fancy trying canoe polo?
Do you already play and want an extra chance to practice?
Polo is a kayaking game for two teams where each team of 5 tries to throw a ball into the opposing team’s net, whilst avoiding being rammed, pushed in, or paddled over. Polo combines paddling and ball handling skills with an exciting contact team game, promoting teamwork, general canoeing skills, and a range of other techniques unique to the sport. More generally though, it’s just great fun!
