A team water sport, canoe or kayak polo matches are played with two teams consisting of five players. The teams try to score goals with the water polo ball in a net suspended above the water at either end of the playing “field.” Paddlers use short polo boat kayaks that increase maneuverability and equipment consists of a double-blade paddle, helmets, PFDs and facemasks for safety. Played in two halves of ten minutes each, the game is a fast-paced test of endurance and skill in the water.
