It's time for the annual Christmas dinner.  This year it will be Thursday week 10 (8th December for those on unusual term times) at Robbins Well in Leamington Spa .  It will be a 3 course meal, see below for menu options, costing £9.95. We have the entire downstairs area booked out for us, and as a special bonus you will be able to order a drink with your main course for only £1.

Due to the large numbers that normally attend we have to let them know details in advance so if you would like to come you will need to go on our website ( if you've been hiding under a rock this entire term), click on the link at the side marked "Christmas Meal" and fill in what you want to eat. Please also hand a £3 deposit to either social sec (but not on Wednesday when we will be quite clearly drunk at pop!) by Monday next week at the latest.  

The meal options are as follows:


Tomato Soup

Or Butterfly Prawns


Main Course

Roast Turkey

Or Nut Roast



Christmas Pudding

Or Waffles

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

Hi everyone

After the fantastic trips we've had so far this term, the next one is almost upon us. 

We'll be heading to Dartmoor on Fri 18th November and returning on the Sunday. This is a joint trip between the uni club and lots of old gits who have left the club, we're hoping there'll be loads of us staying at a scouthut for an awesome social and then paddling on Saturday and Sunday. There'll also be some presentations from ex and current members of the club on some of the trips they've been on, including New Zealand, Sweden and India among others, with some kind of drinking games associated with them. 

This should be a brilliant trip with loads of people and a great chance to get to know some of the ex members of the club or see some old friends you haven't seen for years., and is open to anyone, with posslible opportunities to paddle a variety of rivers or go walking depending on weather conditions.

Sign up will go up at about 1800 tomorrow (Thursday) on the website. If anyone is still having trouble with the website please email me before then at, though I cant promise I'll be able to do anything though.

Circus POP

So, it appears that everyone survived last nights fireworks with one rather unfortunate tree the only casualty.

Of course this means you\'re now all around for this weeks social at pop (death is of course the only valid excuse for non-attendance). This week our theme is circus: an apt description for this club I think. Be there on Wednesday at 7 in fancy dress and don\'t forget to buy your tickets in advance to avoid disappointment.

See you there!
