<><Cardiff Whitewater Centre (CIWW)<><

Posted 1y 1mth ago by Sam Pfeffer-Matthews
If you’re looking for some great whitewater practice before Scotland or just want a distraction from deadlines join us on our day trip to Cardiff Whitewater Centre Sunday of week 9, 12th of March!
 
Sign ups will go up this Thursday at 12pm. https://warwickcanoe.uk/trips/
 
As this will be run as a peer-paddle style trip, there is a requirement that you have been on at least one of our other whitewater trips.
 
There are two sessions run throughout the day, morning and afternoon. Members will be attending both sessions but it is not compulsory to do both. The morning session is designed to be a bit easier than the afternoon with less water being pumped down the course. I highly reccommend getting in as much practice as you can as the course is such an amazing place to learn!
 
It is £10 to book onto a session https://www.ciww.com/ (Fuel cost will be calculated after the trip)
 
Canoe Love,
Sam xx

Polo Sessions this week

Posted 1y 1mth ago by Adriana Cormack
Hey everyone, happy week 7! Due to varsity amongst other things, our sessions this week are looking slightly different:
 
Tuesday- 20:30-22:00 (as normal)
Friday- 20:30-22:00 (ladies only with Birmingham and Bristol Uni attending)
Saturday- 17:30-19:00 (a shorter session due to Varsity)
 
Please note that this is also slightly different to the posted calendar as our B's tournament had to be moved due to Varsity- fear not, it will be happening in term 3 instead.
 
Also, with Cardiff approaching, it would be great to see as many people as possible at sessions.
As always, any questions feel free to message me or any of the exec.
 
Polo love,
