In late 2016 Kayak Northumbria received a Sport England (lottery funded) grant for the development of a canoe polo team in Newcastle Upon Tyne.

Using the funds we purchased a fleet of new composite polo kayaks, as well as custom team buoyancy aids, helmets, face guards, spraydecks, paddles and more. Based at Exhibition Park we train twice a week through the summer months, preparing for regional and national competitions. During the colder months we practice indoors at our local swimming pool.
