Our canoe club’s polo sessions restart on Wednesday January 5 2022.
• The sessions run after our general session from 8.45 until 10-00pm. All paddlers from novice to “hot shot” players are welcome. • The Club has a selection of plastic polo boats, paddles, spray decks, BAs and helmet for members to use. • Due to limitation of time, we generally play six 12-minute games. • For up to 15 players we play 3 teams and 16-20 it is 4 Teams. • Due to the small size of the pool we can only accommodate 20 players, so again please arrive by 8-15pm. • Cost for each pool session is currently £9 and we take contactless payments at the end. • Usually most of us go to the pub afterwards

Some great news and many congratulations to the Bristol Penguins, who finished their final DIV SW Regional Tournament last weekend at our Outdoor Pitch. They won 14 out of 14 games and securing promotion to Div 1 SW next season. In addition their goal difference was +39 goals – obviously they didn’t play the Pitbulls!!!
Very best of luck in Div 1 Penguins – there are some mighty Sharks in that league! More details are available from James Putterill.
