Nottingham Canoe Polo Tournament

Posted 6d ago by Dan Collier

Nottingham University is hosting a canoe polo tournament over the weekend of week 3. Warwick Canoe will be entering an Open team and a FRESHERS team. We may also be entering a ladies' team based on interest in conjunction with Birmingham Uni Canoe Polo. If you have played canoe polo with us before this will be a great opportunity to refresh your skills after the long summer break. If you have never played canoe polo, this is your chance to give it a try. The freshers' team will only play other freshers' teams, so everyone will be in the same position. Not only will this give you a chance to give canoe polo a try outside of the pool sessions but also the chance to experience being part of the wider canoe polo community.

If you are interested in playing please use the following links to sign up, you must have an account on the website to sign up:

The cost of the weekend is still to be confirmed.

Any questions please feel free to ask any member of the exec.

May the tournaments begin again,

Dan

<><ICF Freestyle World Championship Finals<><

Posted 3mth 1d ago by Sam Pfeffer-Matthews
The Finals are being held this Saturday up in Nottingham which shall prove to be a great day where we'll be able to see some of the best kayakers from around the world compete at one event.
We hope to get there for around noon and be back late that evening.
The event itself is 100% free to attend, and we'd only be asking for a basic fuel reimbursement afterwards.
If you haven't been added to the chat for the event yet, let me know asap so we can try and organise transport!
Canoe Love

Week 8 – BBQ and POP!

Posted 3mth 21d ago by Emma Hymas
Hola amigos!
 
With exams out of the way (lucky for some), POP! makes its last appearance of the year.
 
Make sure to buy a Week 8 event only ticket as we will be grilling in the Claycroft suburbs (with some circling taking place too). We’ll meet at the Claycroft entrance at 7 as finding the BBQ can be a little bit challenging.
 
Whilst the BBQ will be set up and ready for arrival, remember to bring your own grilling goods and beverages of choice. Finding your way to Tesco and back is not for the faint of heart.
 
Lastly, the theme for this week is: Cocktails! 🍹
 
From an Old Fashioned to a Zombie, come dressed up as a cocktail of your choice. Non-unique costumes will attract a small punishment.
 
If you’re in need of some more inspiration here’s a list of some famous cocktails - https://www.diffordsguide.com/g/1152/cocktail-hall-of-fame.
 
 
Social Love,
John and Emma xx

Hi all,
We will be running a couple trips over the next month up to Nottingham for those who want to improve their playboating skills!
  1. Michał has been in contact with his kayaking coach (few times Poland champion and World Cup champion) who will be staying in Nottingham while training for the world Championship finals! There may be the opportunity for him to run a training session either for playboating on flatwater or in a hole next weekend (11/12th June).
  2. Saturday the 2nd July also sees the biggest freestyle event of the year at the Men’s and Women’s ICF world championships final, which shall showcase the best professional freestyle kayakers in the world. We hope to run a casual trip up to Nottingham HPP to give it a watch!
Let me know asap if you'd be interested in either trip and we'll put something together!
