(Last Updated:  19 Sep 1999 )

Canoe Polo is a competitive water sport played between two teams of five players, all of whom are in small kayaks.  The object of the game is to score more goals than the other team in the time allowed.

Goals are scored by propelling the ball through the goal frame.  The ball is a standard water polo ball.  The goal is a 1m x 1.5m rectangle suspended vertically two metres above each end of the playing area.  The method of propelling the ball can be one of a number of possibilities, although the most common is throwing.  Other options include flicking or pushing the ball with a paddle.
