Bath Beginners Tournament

Gruess Gott (as in hi...),

There is very very exciting news - spaces for two teams have been confirmed and I've had a trip sign up created on for the University of Bath Beginners Canoe Polo Tournament.

It's all happening next Sunday 18th November. We'll be leaving campus very early on Sunday to be in Bath by 9am (should I have said this?) and be back 10pmish.

They define a Beginner as someone who's been paddling for less than a year and has not played in polo tournaments before. So if that's you, go, sign up! This is the perfect tournament opportunity and you'll get lots of games in a 50m pool! If it's somewhat like you and you look beginnerish you too will qualify.

If you are one of the rather experienced lot, still sign up if interested in coming, however we can only have one experienced player on the pitch at any time and I'll give priority to minibus drivers and team captains, and then see if there still is spaces.

Please sign up asap and by next Tuesday. If you haven't mastered the warwickcanoe website yet and need help e-mail me to tell you'd be interested to come to the tournament and e-mail with questions regarding your login.

See you all at polo hopefully today and on Friday,
Elle Presidente

Allright guys one of the best socials of the year is upon us I promised more details, here they are. We have the fire works now we need the audience the more the merrier, Fat boy has spent a hefty sum (along with sparklers) on fireworks so it would be nice to see as many as people as possible! And Old gits!
ok the plan is to meet at the Church bus stop at: 20:00 so campus people meet in the bar for 19:15 where nicky will be to meet people. Bring warm clothes and extra sparklers! and whatever you deem appropriate! The night will cost a fiver but good value and good laughs
Tom and Tom
p,s any questions send us an email or give us a call, for those diehards there is evolve afterwards

Hi everyone,

The Tyne Tour signup will go up this Wednesday, at 11am (or thereabouts). The trip is at the end of week 5 (2-4 November). Details will follow nearer the time.

This is a great trip, and very popular. We paddle a section of the Tyne, along with many many other people, on Saturday, and camp with other unis on the river bank in Hexham. In the evening there is a ceilidh/huge party. We then paddle another river on the Sunday. Just ask anyone who's been before what they thought of it.

Sign up quick to avoid disappointment!

Canoe Polo Rules Course

Dear all,

there will be an "Introduction to the Rules of Canoe Polo" course for both people new to sport and those who would like a refresher of the rules held *next Tuesday before polo at 6pm in S1.66*. This is a room in Social Studies building, meet me 5.50pm in Piazza if you fancy a walk there together.

If you would like to attend, please drop Matt an e-mail (, very nice guy who'll be holding the course), just so he knows the numbers.

The course is very advisable and especially advisible considering that we'll be holding several tournaments this term and you'll all have chances to play!

Provisional tournament dates for your diary:

10th November - West Midlands tournament (Sign up will go up next week. Would be great if you could make this considering half the club will be BUSA white water racing. Don't worry if you've never played, first time for everything! I swam numerous times on my first tournament, couldn't paddle straight, but look at me now.. :P)

18th November - Bath Beginners Tournament (our entry yet to be confirmed, more info to follow)

25th November - own organised Warwick Autumn Tournament (Mens B and Ladies B-teams open to everyone who'd fancy a game)

Thus, conclusion, rules come in handy, e-mail Matt.

First Aid courses

Warwick Sport are organizing the following:

On Thursday 18th October at 4pm in the Westwood Lecture Theatre - Outdoor Activities Risk Seminar. 
On Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th November - Outdoor Activity First Aid Course from 9-5pm in the Cryfield Pavilion.

These are typically reserved for exec members, but I'm trying to get an extra space for anyone who might be interesed in doing them, prefereably someone about to be with the clubs for another couple of years i.e. not finalists.

Especially the weekend course is a valuable experienced, very professionally taught, gives you a 3 year certificate as a First Aider, who can work for the Sports Centre at various events etc., and it'd normally cost a fortune.

I can't guarantee that you'll actually be able to do it, but e-mail me ( if you're interested!

State full name, year you're in, phone nr and which one of the courses interests you. Will let ya then know whether you have a place.
