Canoe Polo

A sport that requires no previous experience, Canoe Polo is for the brave and the bold, and anyone who enjoys team games and/or water sports! Having been called a mixture of basketball, hockey and water polo, it is sport you've most likely never seen before, but will definitely love!

Played in kayaks and 5-person teams, the aim is to throw the ball between your teammates and score goals, all whilst avoiding the other team. The ball can be thrown by hand, or even flicked with the paddle. Paddles will thrash, boats will clash, you will shoot, goals may be scored. 

We will provide all the kit you need, including boat, paddles, spraydeck, helmet, BA etc. (except for swimming kit, a t-shirt and a towel).

We participate in BUCS each year with two open teams and a ladies team, whilst also hosting several tournaments throughout the year here in the swimming pool! 

 

Both Warwick Canoe and Warwick Canoe Polo hold a zero tolerance policy to discriminatory attitudes and expect their members to show each other respect regardless of ethnicity, age, religion, disability, sexual orientation or gender identity.

Our usual training times are:

  • Tuesday: 20:30-22:00, Sports Hub Swimming Pool
  • Wednesday: 08:00-09:00, Ball Throwing in Westwood Games Hall (followed by breakfast on Campus!)
  • Friday: 20:30-22:00, Sports Hub Swimming Pool
  • Saturday: 17:00-19:00, Sports Hub Swimming Pool

Some members also like to take boats for optional fitness training on the River Leam on Wednesday afternoons.

Our pool sessions are usually followed by an optional trip to the Dirty Duck to socialise and chill out. We usually have a variety of weekly socials joint with the Canoe Club such as Pop, Skool Dayz, curries, barbecues, bar crawls, fireworks, cocktails, and much more!
