--- NOTTINGHAM CANOE POLO FRESHERS TOURNAMENT ---

Posted 4mth 16d ago by Molly Bevan
Hi everyone!!
 
I hope you are all having a lovely week. Whether you are a fresher or a returner, we have the perfect polo opportunity for you. Nottingham are hosting a tournament from the 4-5th November (end of week 5)! We are hoping to enter an open, ladies and fresher team. Even if you have never played polo before, this is a great opportunity to get involved in the sport at a beginner-friendly level, not far from campus. We will be hopefully staying in a scout hut overnight so NO CAMPING and will provide all necessary paddling equipment and transport too!!!
 
If you have any other questions or reservations about playing in a tournament then please do reach out to me or any member of the polo exec and we can talk you through how everything works!
 
Signups are open under the trips section of the website: https://warwickcanoe.uk/trips/trip.php?trip_id=158
 
Let me know if you have any questions!! 🙂
Polo love,
Molly and all the exec x

Mixed Netball Skill Swap This Friday Session!! 

Posted 8mth 28d ago by Yousuf Mohammed

Hey everyone! I hope everyone has been surviving the exam season so far. There is no better way to ease your mind from exams than to join the Canoe Polo & Mixed Netball Skill Swap!! 

 

Mixed Netball will be joining us first at this week’s Friday’s pool session 8:30-10pm (2nd of June). Please be aware that this session will be treated as a ‘Taster Session’ meaning priority will be given to the Mixed Netball members and the regular returners session will not take place. I would still like to encourage as many of you to come and join the session to show the sport to everyone trying it out and help out during the session to make sure the Mixed Netball members really enjoy their time playing polo! 

 

After this, you all will get the chance to swap skills too by heading out to the netball courts and join MIxed Netball at their sport. The details for this are still being confirmed so stay tuned for more information over the next few weeks. 

 

Any questions feel free to contact me or any of The Exec :)) 

 

Polo Love,

 

Yousuf x

Rage Fantasy League

Posted 9mth 3d ago by Dan Collier
Next Tuesday will see the first of 3 evening sessions, where our members will be battling it out to gain points in our RAGE charity tournament. Alongside this, we will be running our own fantasy league.
 
HOW WILL THIS WORK?
Each player will have an associated cost and you will have to create a team, whilst keeping to the set budget. Do you spend your money on fewer players or do you get more players in the hope of picking the best of the best? Who will you pick?
 
You are allowed to enter as many teams as you want, £2 per team. The money that we raise will go to the charity of the winning team from the tournament.
 
If you are interested, please sign up on the Warwick Canoe website, via the link below.
