What is Canoe Polo?
Canoe Polo is a fast-paced game of two halves of 10 minutes. It is played by two teams with a minimum of five players in open water or in a swimming pool. With the aim to score into a goal suspended above the water at each end of the pitch. Canoe Polo combines kayaking and ball handling skills within the contact team game where tactics and positional play are as important as the speed and fitness of the individual athletes.
