Here’s Toby’s call to arms for the new polo season, now with added NW league entry!
Calling all active paddlers looking for a challenge for the winter!
Are you a beginner looking to move on from forwards & backwards paddling, stability & turning?
Do you have good paddling skills but want to develop further and want to have a combat roll?
Introducing Canoe Polo!
Like a cross between rugby, basketball, & American football – played five-a-side in kayaks. You can dribble, you can tackle, if you get the ball in the net you score!
We’re publicising the start of our new canoe polo season, indoors on Monday nights from 1st October and quickly building towards our first Division 4 North West league game on Saturday 13 October in Liverpool. There’s three more indoor tournaments at Cheadle (15 Dec, 16 Feb), and Stoke on Trent (19 Jan).
First training session is Monday 1st October and all subsequent Mondays to Christmas. We play in the downstairs Priory pool in the Quarry Leisure Centre, Shrewsbury – 7:40pm for 8pm start on the water. The price £8.50 per session with block booking available.
All welcome including beginners – as long as you can paddle & don’t mind getting wet. All polo kit available at the pool. Just bring your enthusiasm, and swimming kit, as well as a short sleeve top.
See below for some action photos & feel free to ask any questions!
Thank you for your time & hope to see you Monday !
