SUP Polo

Maybe you’ve seen it or heard about it …the exhilarating board/ ball sport of SUP Polo !!

Highly energising and challenging, two teams of 3/4 Paddlers battle it out to retrieve the ball with specially made paddles and shoot the ball into the goal at either end of the pool.

Its like a floating game of football!

The rules of SUP Polo are pretty simple: The field is 20 long x 15 metres and it’s three-a-side. You’ve gotta use your paddle to get the ball into the net in order to score. You can’t handle the ball while you’re on your knees or in the water, which is an important point to note because you WILL be in the water during SUP Polo.

The halves are usually around 5 minutes each, which sounds short but will seriously tax your lungs: This game is not only fun, it’s also a hell of a good workout.

A 1 hour session gives plenty of 5 minute each way games and time to relax in the pool.

You can bring a forth person as a sub/ reserve to give a team mate a rest!
