Canoe Polo is a team sport where two teams of five kayakers compete against each other to score a goal in their opponents goal which is suspended 2 meters above the water. It shares similarities with rugby, basketball and netball.

There are tournaments for women, youth and open categories with regional, national and international competitions.

Youth, Womens & Mixed Open Teams

Canoe Polo is an inclusive sport with mixed teams. Our Youth team is open to members aged 11 and above, and our women’s team is open to members aged 14 and above.

Here’s a few clips from Tamzin’s point of view (age 13), who is a member of our Youth, Women’s and Open teams.
