What we're about

Kayak polo (known as Canoe Polo in Europe) is an exciting and fun game! We've been playing kayak polo on Lady Bird Lake in central Austin since 1997. We play generally twice a week all year long on Wednesday evening and Sunday afternoon. During spring, summer and fall we have first timers and beginner nights (Monday nights). All skills and levels are welcome. We provide all the gear and instruction, generally for free (The first time you come out, you will rent a sit on top from the Texas Rowing Center for $10, After that you get to use the club gear). As you improve you will want to get your own gear so it fits better. Our club goes to nationals every year and we’re always looking for new players. This year it is here in Austin. So we are a club that are looking for people to commit to the club. You’ll find that it’s a very addicting sport once you start playing. So y’all come out and give it a try.
