Hello Christmas Elves!
Now I hope you all are exciting about the Christmas meal tonight, or if you are reading this tomorrow that you are suitably still full/ hungover. Either way there is still one more thing you can do canoe related this term... Its the amazing canoe feeback survey found HERE:
We want to know the good, the bad and the ugly of  the canoe club! What do YOU think about the club? Is it amazing or is it downright abysmal!
Freshers we are particularly looking at you, you are our future (scary thoughts)! and it seems so long ago the exec were in your position we really value your views!
So everyone if you could take 5 minutes to fill it in we would be very grateful and hopefully you will get an even better club out of it!

It's getting to that time of year when you really can't be arsed with work... So, to top off a great weekend of Polo, we will be having our first RAGE! Tournament of the year.

Freshers, this is an internal tournament we run on a Tuesday night. Most people make an effort to turn up and it's great fun! The teams will be mixed ability, so don't worry about being beaten by the A team.

What: RAGE! Tournament
When: 6th December 2011, 19:15 - 21:30

What do I have to do to play? Go to the website, click Trips on the left hand side and sign up under "RAGE! Tournament Winter 2011". If you have any problems, email me! If people just turn up, there is no guarentee you'll get a game.

Any questions, let me know! We'll probably pick teams on Sunday during some down time, so please sign up by Saturday evening - not sure how many teams there will be yet. Probably 4.

Like last year, the jackets will have 'WARWICK CANOE' printed on the back, ''  on the bottom of the back and your choice of name stitched on front left side, all in white.


One of these snugly warm jackets can be yours for only £73.


For now all you need to do is post below or email me ( the follow details (payment will be sorted out later):

Pick & Mix - This Friday

For those who have not heard of the Pick and Mix Sports Club, they are a free-to-join group at Warwick Uni who try out a different sport every week. This week we have arranged to run a session for them on Friday at 2pm to introduce some of their members to the wonderful world of Canoe. According to an inside source this was announced to the great excitement of the club last week so lets not disappoint! To do this we'd like the help of members to go through the basics - running swim tests and capsize drills for people and showing a little bit of how to get around. After we have everyone moving around in boats a bit we'll run a few fun games, bulldog, silly races and the like. Anyone can come help out - you only have to show people what you yourself did when you joined and we want people to see what a fantastic friendly club we are, so the more the merrier. It would be great if the Pick-and-mix-ers had such a good time they all want to come join us! Please post below if you think you might come along so I have a rough idea who'll be there.

Hi guys, As per usual, the B team will be competing at the upcoming Winter Tournament. It's going to a day of great polo and an awesome opportunity for getting some quality game time. The aim is to get as many of you guys involved as possible and to give you a chance to see what it's like playing in a tournament and against teams with players you don't know (yet). There WILL be spaces for freshers, so don't worry if you think you're not good enough, we want to know you want to play! If you want to play at the tournament, please signup on and come to the pool session on Tuesday 29th November. We will have a few selection games and pick the team. The A team have been selected and notified. If you didn't make it this time, the teams are, of course, still fluid and BUCS is a long time away. Please sign up for the B team and prove your worth by beating the A team. If you have any questions about this, please contact the B team captain, Eugene, at

polo rules presentation week 8

Hi all, This is aimed mainly at 1st years/people that are new to canoe polo. Now that youve had time to get yourselves used to balancing in a boat while holding a ball, you may have started to wonder a bit about whats going on in the game and what the referees blowing their whistle for So there will be a rules presentation next Tuesday (22nd November) before the pool session 6-7pm in the Ramphel Building room R3.25. Itll be a great opportunity to gain a better understanding of the game and how it works (and what fouls to avoid committing). Jess (secretary) Also, if you have a look at our website, you'll see that there's a rules page here
