University of York Students' Union (YUSU)

Canoe Polo

Canoe Polo is a high octane, contact sport between two teams of up to 8 players, five on the pitch at one time. The teams compete to score in goals suspended above the water. Canoe Polo is played in a swimming pool or on any stretch of flat water e.g a lake or canal. Canoe polo is played at a very fast pace; teamwork and positioning are essential in the game. YUCPC welcomes newcomers to the sport, with our array of experienced players ready to pass on their skills.
