Please accept this as an invitation to come and join us in this our
24th Year of the Canoe Polo Internationals here in Liverpool
After our return last year we are more than pleased that we are able to continue to run our event at the renowned World Heritage site the Albert Dock.
The event is run over a 4 pitch facility and caters for all ability levels. Dependent on the interest and entry level we shall run leagues for Ladies, Open, Youth U 18 on or after 1st May 1994 and U16 s on or after 1st May 1996 with separate class prizes.
Whilst costs will apply for parking at the venue and the use of our campsite those fees will be kept to the minimum and only reflect what we have to cover.
The Albert Dock facility has always been and even more so now an excellent opportunity to showcase our sport. With the Liverpool One shopping precinct within sight we expect to generate a lot of interest. Whilst the programme has yet to be published we expect there will be a number of other events running in the Albert Dock and its surrounds over the weekend.
FOR THE FIRST TIME FOR SOME YEARS OUR EVENT RUNS UNDER AND AS PART OF THE RE VAMPED MERSEY RIVER FESTIVAL, SO YOU CAN EXPECT A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT AND VARIED BOTH QUAYSIDE AND ON WATER ACTIVITIES AND COMPLIMENTERY EVENTS RUNNING OVER THE WEEKEND.
WE HOPE TO SEE YOU ALL HERE IN LIVERPOOLJUNE 8TH and 9TH 2013
Despite a less than convincing performance by their own standards our Division 2 Z Team managed to gain a promotion place into Division1 this weekend at the Hull National Play Offs Tournament.
They now join the select top ten teams in the British National Leagues Division1.
Alan Barry, George Roots, Graham Webster, Lewis McVey, Kartik McCutcheon and Suryan McCutcheon.
Dependant on their continuing progress with an average age of 18 plus years it should in-auger well for the club going forward.
Well done to them all.
Just a reminder that as part of the Go Canoeing Week we will be holding open Novice Canoe Polo tournaments at both of our venues:
25th May Crosby Lakeside Start Time 1000 a.m.
1st June Collingwood Dock Start Time 1000 a.m.
There will be a small fee for attending £3.00 most of which will be donated to a local cancer charity.
The Tournaments are all welcoming and hopefully will attract both new starters and current paddlers to our sport.
In the absence of personal playing kit the club will make it's competition equipment available to all of the participants.
Hi I wondered if you could list our 2 kayaks that were stolen some time over the weekend of Saturday 27th April 2013 from Upton in Chester.
1 x Liquid Logic Remix 79 in neon pink and
1 x Dagger nomad 8.1 in Orange
If anyone is offered these kayaks for sale I would be really pleased if you could contact me, the Remix is particularly noticeable given it's colour.
Yesterday both of our Division 2 North Y and Z teams played in the final tournament of the season.
Congratulations are extended to both teams the Z team are the D2 North Champions having won every game throughout the season and with our Y team finishing runners up it is a creditable performance from both of our club sides.
By virtue of their achievements both teams are now eligible to attend the National D1 play offs were hopefully we may well regain our D1 status.
The composition of D1is made up of the best 10 teams in the British Leagues.
Players over the season were:
Division 2 Champions
Alan Barry, Lewis McVey, Kartik McCutcheon, George Roots, Graham Webster, and Suryan McCutcheon.
Division 2 Runners Up
Prudence Blyth, Ginny Coyles, Charlotte Lister, James Mallon, Kathryn Moffitt, and Stuart Moffitt.
Well Done to you All.
