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.

Beginners night - try out Kayak polo for the first time

Texas Rowing Center

• What we'll do We will be offering some beginner classes on Mondays nights (roughly once or twice a month depending on the demand ) if you have never done this before. We also play on Wednesdays @6:30 pm and Sundays @2:00 pm but those nights are just for playing games for the club members. Monday night usually are reserved for getting people started. So once you have gone through the basics you’ll be able to play those other days. If you want to talk to me just send me your phone number and I’ll give you a quick call. Ps. If you like to get started there are some short videos you can watch, look for the Links here https://www.meetup.com/Austin-Kayak-Polo-Club/pages/19321243/Stroke_drills%2C_shoulder_exercises • What to bring We have boats, paddles, helmets, spray skirts and life jacket for y’all to use. Bring clothes that you can get wet in. • Important to know We are a nonprofit club and we do not charge any money but our club can take donations to help buy new gear to the club so new people can get into the sport.
