Canoe Polo is an exciting team event played on 35m x 23m pitches set up in swimming pools or on flat stretches of water. Teams of 5 paddlers endeavour to score goals in a net suspended 2m above the water, the ball being thrown by hand, or ‘flicked’ with the paddle. Naturally, the team with the most goals at the end of the match wins the game.

Volunteers are a critical part of any sporting organisation and there are plenty of opportunities to help to develop and grow our sport. Here are some of the ways you could help:
Please get in touch with any of the Committee members if you want to help.
The Committee is made up of volunteers and meets regularly throughout the year to develop and promote the sport. Following this year’s General Meeting a number of pivotal roles changed hands and we saw ourselves with an almost brand new committee. If you think you can help out in any way you don’t need to wait until the next General Meeting to get involved. Contact any of the Committee members for more information about helping out.
