Our pool sessions are aimed at people of all abilities, from kayaking experts to complete beginners. All you need to bring to each session is yourself and swimming kit, and we will supply the rest. At your first pool session you are required to swim 2 lengths and then do a capsize drill whilst supervised and guided by one of our experienced members.
We are now over at the NEW fancy Sports Hub on Scarman Road, behind Heronbank (Hype!)
We offer FREE taster sessions for the first 3 weeks of term
After every evening session we will frequent The Dirty Duck and after Ball Throwing we generally go to Xananas for Breakfast. If you have missed these sessions drop us a message on the Facebook page and we can arrange a time for you to come along.
Tournaments & Competitions
As the year progresses the Canoe Polo club will host and attend a multitude of tournaments. These will cater to all abilities and are a great way to improve skills and earn some sweet medals. Everything leads towards the BUCS tournament where mens, ladies and B teams from universities across the country compete with the aim to determine the British Champions.
On Friday evenings (8:30 – 10:00pm) we host squad training sessions which primarily focus on preparation for the tournaments.
On the Canoe side we participate against other Universities at BUCS Wild Water Racing on the River Washburn.
Throughout the year the Canoe Club has multiple Whitewater trips around the UK before heading to Scotland for the annual tour at Easter. These trips are accessible for members of all abilities and are a great opportunity to improve your gnar shredding ability.
Additionally members will organise peer-paddling trips throughout the year to rivers and whitewater courses, generally these are advertised on the Facebook Group.
Canoe Polo also holds training sessions on the River Leam in, unsurprisingly, Leamington Spa. These generally occur in Term 2 and the main aim is to practice boat skills, ball skills and fitness. As is par for the club this will most likely be followed by a trip to the pub.
All year round the club runs a variety of socials from Pub Golf to LaZerquest and from Christmas Meal to EPIC Party(our version of Sports Ball), there is something for everyone
Signs up for trips and tournaments all happen through our website so if you are interested in joining this raggedy crew please make an account on the website. To make an account for the website, click this link

RAGE. IS. BACK.
Our friendly (├░┼©╦£ÔÇª) neighbourhood fantasy tournament is back again for 2019!
For the uninitiated, Rage is a tournament within the club where teams compete against each other for ultimate glory! It works similarly to fantasy football, with people and teams gaining points for more than just goals...(More details on this to follow)
Signups are open now, and will close on Monday night. Games will be in Tuesday’s sessions and are planned to start in Week 5.
Any questions, feel free to ask below or message me directly on Facebook :)
Your friendly trainee Coach
