СК «9 ВАЛ» Петрашев А. Also known as Kayak polo, known simply as “polo” by its aficionados. Is one of the competitive disciplines of canoeing, where tactics and positional play are as important as the speed and fitness of the individual athletes. The canoe polo requires excellent teamwork and promotes both general canoeing skills and a range of other techniques unique to the sport.
Polo combines canoeing and ball handling skills with a contact team game — or flicked with the paddle to pass between players and shoot at the goal. The ball can be thrown by hand, pitches can be set up in swimming pools or any stretch of flat water. The canoes are specifically designed for polo and are faster and lighter than typical kayaks which give them fantastic maneuverability.
