Canoe polo at Surrey.

We at the University of Surrey canoe club are constantly improving in our rankings and skill in the sport of canoe polo.

This sport is extremely exciting and fun and skillful to play but is fairly unheard of.

Our kit

The kit we have is extremely old, outdated and frankly almost dangerous to use as it is way past its sell-by date. We have tried all avenues to get funding for new kit from the university to no avail.

We want to bring division 1 of the national canoe polo to Surrey and already have started this process. Also this year we have 3 teams that will be competing at BUCS (British University Colleges Sport) at the moment, we do not have even enough kit to cover one team let alone three.

Due to all this, we are fundraising so we can get the essential kit needed; buoyancy aids and Cags (waterproof splash tops for playing outside).

With your support

We need at least 2 teams worth of buoyancy aids otherwise competing will be very difficult as well as dangerous. This is a total of 16 buoyancy aids and also need a total of 16 Cags.

We also desperately need new helmets as ours no longer fit and have degraded over many years of use.

Not only is this kit essential but it would mean our team looks and feels united and will spur them on to play harder, paddle faster and win more.

With your support, we hope to develop and progress into the canoe polo team that we know we can be!
