Canoe Polo - What is it all about?
Canoe Polo is a fun game - like basketball except in a boat.
The game is played competitively and for fitness - it is also a great way to develop boat control skills.
Come along to a training session and give it a go - you might even be paddling alongside a world champion!
Approximately 50% of our Club members have a keen interest in Canoe Polo and we have teams competing nationally at all abilities - from the elite level to beginner level. We do not only compete nationally but internationally. We often go to mainland Europe to compete - however in recent years members from our club have also travelled to Austraila, Canada, China (Multiple Times), And many more! Could that be you one day if you wanted... This is all OUR club has to offer.
In 2004 the BCU Canoe Polo Committee introduced a new annual award for the "Top Canoe Polo Club in the UK" which was presented to Friends of Allonby for winning the Open, Ladies and Youth categories at the National Championships for the second time in three years. Our Club received this prestigious award for a second time at the 2008 BCU Club Championships
