Burley Griffin Canoe Club has an active Canoe Polo division.  New and returning players of all ages and abilities are welcome.
Canoe Polo is a team event played on a 35 m x 23 m field set up in a swimming pool or on flat stretches of water. Teams of 5 paddlers endeavour to score goals in a net suspended two lasix 40mg metres above the water, the ball being thrown by hand or "flicked" with the paddle.
Canoe Polo in Canberra is played at both a non-competitive and a competitive level.
A weekly competition is held on Wednesday evenings at the Tuggeranong Pool with set up commencing at 6:45 p.m. and Games from 7:00 p.m.
If you are interested in trying Canoe Polo or returning to if, please contact the Canoe Polo Convener, via this website, prior to coming to the game on a Wednesday night.

Thank you to Patricia Ashton for our timekeeping.
 
A few points to consider: When completing your race you must finish between the blue buoy and the pontoon to have your time recorded. When doing laps you stay outside the blue buoy (pass to the left of the blue buoy). This complies with rules you’ll encounter at PNSW marathon events and also makes it easier for the time keepers to keep track of who is finishing and who isn’t.  A 1 minute penalty will be applied to consistent offenders. The new Kingston Loop option is going ahead for paddlers willing to complete a portage. There has been a lot of interest from ski paddlers who don’t want to portage and the committee is working out a safety plan at the moment. Once the plan is devised the Kingston Loop option will be available to more paddlers.
 
Please volunteer to time keep or barbecue. If you are unsure of how the timing is done we can sit you with someone who has some experience.
