Summer Season at Payneham Pool

The local summer season is at the Payneham pool, O.G. Road, Payneham
This is an 8 week season from Wednesday 6th Feb – 27th March. The pool has increased the hiring fee so we have needed to increase fees to cover costs.

Adults: -$210 for the whole season, to be paid by Week 2;
Juniors: -$160
$35 if paying casually each week.

Teams:- Either nominate a team or nominate as an individual player and we will try to make up teams to provide a good competition.
Send nominations to Anne ( ). Please let me know if you want to be in a Div 1 or Div 2 team.
Be at the pool by 7:30pm to help set up the goals and be ready for a 7:45pm start. We are paying for set up time so the quicker we get it done the better.

Australia Day competition

A reminder to all players and their friends that the next Summer Series competition is at Mawson Lakes on Saturday 26 – Sunday 27 January 2019.

New BatChat editor and polo committee members needed 

Simon and Anne are stepping down from the canoe polo technical committee. We will be travelling and have other commitments so our polo playing will be spasmodic in the near future. We need someone to take on our jobs of organising the competition timetables and writing the BatChat. This will be our last BatChat. We are happy to work with the new committee member to get them started. If you would like to take over these small jobs please contact Noel Holmes or email Canoe Polo SA


Training is still on at Corcoran Drive, West Lakes every Sunday morning, 9 am – 11 am.
Come and join the fun.
