Games are played at Lake Roto Kohatu.
There is a Spring league played during Oct-Nov/Dec, and a Summer league, played during Feb-Mar.
Check this out! Just watch the first part. Don't worry, we're not that intense.
It's a ball game played five aside. Players are to shoot a soccer sized ball into a net suspended a few metres above the pool, guarded by a paddle bearing goalie.
The Internation Canoe Federation rules are here.
If you’re keen to enter a team or individually email the polo officer ASAP and come along to Lake Roto Kohatu (near the airport) on Wednesday night.
Teams are of 5+. We'll put you in a team according to your experience but you do need a team name! i.e my team will be called "Wet Dreams". Email suggestions to the polo officer.
