Skills Pool Session

Monday 22nd October 2018 19:40 at Mill house leisure Centre, Hartlepool

Meet at the boathouse for 19:40, to load the boats onto cars and drive to Hartlepool. 

The session is 21:00-22:00 and you can expect to be back in Durham for around 22:45. 

Please bring swimwear, and a towel (and t-shirt/shorts/leggings to wear on top in the pool if you want). The cost for these sessions is £5.

In this session you will be taught general kayaking skills, play games and have fun in the warmth of a swimming pool with our trained coaches -- one of the best sessions of the week to come to if you're a beginner, or if you want to work on improving any of your kayaking skills.

This is also a chance for  more experienced members to come and practice their coaching or freestyle paddling, so there's something for everyone!

DUCC friendly Polo tournament

Saturday 20th October 2018 09:00 at Stockton

This is a friendly canoe polo tournament run by our club and aimed at freshers and less experienced players.

If you have never played before don't let that stop you! This is a really chilled out fun tournament and rules will be explained before, during and after games!

If you are already a keen Polo player please come along too! It will still be great fun and a good opportunity to play with the new members of the club.

We have competition coming from other universities and local teams. This is a great first polo tournament!

This is also an opportunity for our club to do some fundraising. So if you are a secret Mary Berry and would like to donate some cakes or treats to our cake stall it would be much appreciated! All profits go back into the club to help buy equipment, subsidise future events and so on.

The cost is £30 per team + fuel (~£15/car). So the cost to YOU would be approx £10 (lower if lots of people sign up!)

If you sign up but then cannot make it, you must unsign and let Dan Robson or Calum Spooner know before the 18th Oct. If you pull out after this date/don't show up you will still be charged.
