The regular Wednesday night Canoe Polo competition is postponed during July and August as the Lakeside Leisure Centre is closed for refurbishment, we are currently investigating alternative venues.

We will return to the Lakeside Leisure Centre in September prior to returning to Molonglo Reach in October.

Contact the Canoe Polo Convenor with any enquiries.

As you are aware this year is the 25th birthday of the club.  We might recognise the boat, but who are the paddlers?

Progress has been made with the names of these paddlers. (6 Jul 15)
