SUP polo?

SUP polo is a super-fun and addictive ball game on paddleboards. The SUP polo field has two goals and players have special paddles with which it is possible to "hold" and throw the ball.
There are 3 people in a team and the goal is to get the ball into the goal and do that more times than the opposing team.


When? Where?

We have a polo field set up on Anne Canal. Come play with friends or book sessions for a whole month or summer.
