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!
Do you have good paddling skills but want to develop beyond 2 star?
Looking to develop forwards & backwards paddling, stability & turning?
Want to develop your 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 polo season, starting indoors on Monday nights from 25 September and quickly building towards our Division 3 North West league games at the end of October & through the winter. Tournaments are on Saturdays at Liverpool, Cheadle, and Stoke on Trent.
First training session is Monday 25th September and all subsequent Mondays to Christmas. We play in the downstairs Priory pool in the Quarry Leisure Centre, Shrewsbury – 7:40pm for 8pm on the water. The price £7 per session with block booking available.
All welcome – as long as you can paddle & don’t mind getting wet. All polo kit available at the pool. Just bring yourself, you enthusiam, and swimming kit, as well as a short sleeve top if you have one.
See below for some action photos & feel free to ask any questions!
Thank you for your time & see you in a couple of weeks,
SCC Polo Team (Tom ,Toby, Dylan, et al)
