Canoe Polo

About Canoe Polo

CanoeAmidst flashing paddles and crashing water, the ten canoe polo players in face guard helmets and body armours look like aquatic gladiators. But the hard-hitting action justifies every piece of protective gear that they wear. From the first blow of the referee’s whistle the two teams of five fight over possession of the ball, no player being allowed to keep it for more than five seconds before passing it to a team mate with hands or paddles, … or before scoring a goal. Tackling a ball-holding player including his or her high-tech kayak is permitted!
