Palmerston North is an outdoor venue much like the one used in Nagambie. There are currently three permanent courts onsite available for teams to train on prior (and also after ) to Oceania Champs. The club has large player numbers so can offer support as required. The city has a conference centre with plenty of hotel and motels as well as a number of camping grounds.

Canoe Polo NZ’s intention is to open up Oceania to travelling World Master Games teams who wish to participate in an extra competition. Hopefully this will add to the team entries and the calibre of the grades. Further information coming from NZ in December.

If you have any questions, please contact Ian Beasley (0419 364 651, ibeasley@eftel.net.au

Nominate now to join our regular trip across the Tasman to take on the Kiwis!
