><> ><> Warwick Canoe Polo As tournament <>< <><

Posted 1mth 1d ago by James Hickmott

Ciao all,

 

We're pleased to announce that this year, our As tournaments are back, and signups are now open.

This will be from around 14:30-20:00 on Saturday the 19th. Anyone is welcome to sign up, however, this does not guarantee you a spot, this will be determined by the number of signups we get, but feel free to sign up if you would like to be considered.

There will be many other unis there, so it's a good chance to play against a variety of abilities. Thankfully this is taking place in the Warwick pool, so there's no need to travel, and it's also completely free!

If you don't make the team this time, there's no need to worry, we will be hosting a Bs and ladies tournament later in the year, so there should be a good chance for everyone to compete.

Polo love,

Week 5 Bowling 🎳

Posted 1mth 6d ago by Emma Hymas

Evening Everyone,

As we reach the midpoint of term 1, it’s time to enjoy one of the more extreme socials of the year, that’s right. Bowling. Prepare to devastate some pins and make the obligatory Wii bowling shout as you fight with your lane mates about whether to allow bumper use or not.

The cost of all this fun is a mere £10, which nets you 2 games and a beverage of your choosing.

We’ll be heading to Tenpin bowling in Leamington for 8pm, and there will be a pub opportunity afterwards for those interested

Signups for this social will close midnight on Monday to give us time to book lanes so please sign yourself up here: https://warwickcanoe.uk/trips/trip.php?trip_id=124 and transfer £10 to the social account to secure your place.

If you dont have the details, just drop me a message and i'll send them over :) 

Social Love,

John & Emma xxx

***Dartmoor Trip***

Hey paddlers!

Our next trip will be from the 4th to the 6th Nov (weekend of week 5) to Dartmoor!

We’ll depart Friday afternoon and return to campus late Sunday evening. This trip is designed for people of all abilities so it doesn’t matter if you’ve never been on moving water before.

Signups open on our website this Thursday at 12:00. In order to sign up you need to make an account. It’s best to do this in advance as places go fast! https://warwickcanoe.uk/ You must also have Canoe membership to sign up for the trip.

Once you’ve signed up your place will be confirmed by the exec a few days after signups.

The trip itself will cost £45, which includes transport, accommodation and kit. Once sign ups close your place will be confirmed by a member of the exec and you’ll be given further details of what you need to bring.

Remember spaces are limited so sign up fast!

TIME TO BUY MEMBERSHIP +BURSARY

Posted 1mth 14d ago by Adriana Cormack
TL;DR- Buy membership to continue to come along to sessions, both clubs need an 'on-campus' membership, the sports officer bursary is an opportunity for those struggling financially to still be able to participate in sport
 
Hey everyone it's me again talking about memberships...
It is really important that you have bought membership if you want to keep coming to the sessions. Without it, you will be refused entry into the pool.
Both clubs are 'on campus' sports and so require you to buy:
  • Sports Federation Student Membership
  • Club Pass Membership Fee (ON CAMPUS)
Afterwards, it will just cost £6 to buy the standard membership for both clubs. We recommend you buy both to ensure you can make the most out of your paddling experience at university and all we have to offer!
 
We do understand however, that this is an expensive cost and so the SU Sports Officer (Emma Birch) has a bursary set up designed for those students who face financial hardship but demonstrate a passion for sport and want to be able to participate. More information can be found here: https://forms.office.com/r/8V7MZxS815
If you require any more information feel free to contact me, Sam, our club welfare officer Toby or any of the other exec who will be happy to help!
 
More information can also be found about the clubs here:

><> ><> Nottingham Polo trip cancellation <>< <><

Posted 1mth 19d ago by James Hickmott

Hi everyone,

 

We're sorry to announce this, but unfortunately our polo trip to Nottingham next week has been cancelled due to dangerous levels of toxins in the water. We were all looking forward to this, so we're currently trying to organise a smaller, friendly tournament with Birmingham Uni. The good news is that this would hopefully take place in our normal pool session on campus, so you'll no longer need to worry about the early mornings!

This should still be a good chance to practice some of the new things we'll learn in our snacktics session, with proper rules, so everyone will be welcome to come along.

We'll give you all know more information as soon as we have it.

 

Polo love,

James and all the exec

Week 3 POP!

Posted 1mth 20d ago by Emma Hymas
Hello Everyone,
 
Week 3 POP! is fast approaching and with that comes the announcement of a theme!
 
We’ve chosen to kick of this year with something we feel will allow you to really get to know one another.
 
‘We’re famous for’ - Come dressed as something your hometown/area is famous for. Whether the best thing you’ve produced is Greg Wallis or perhaps the first ever Cheese & Pickle sandwich. We want to see the best (and maybe worst) your area has to offer.
 
You’ll need an Event only ticket for week 3, as we will be circling in Claycroft before making our way over to POP! (more details of the location will be on the facebook event shortly). 
 
Make sure to buy BEFORE THEY SELL OUT!!! We don’t want anyone sad the morning of. https://tickets.warwicksu.com/ents/event/22902/
 
Click going here if you’re able to make it: https://fb.me/e/5kxhgDeuO
