Known also as 'canoe polo', kayak polo is a type of kayaking
team sport. It is
played in kayaks (not Canoe
s), and also involves a water polo ball and two rectangular goals. It is generally played in a 40m by 25m rectangular area (e.g. a large swimming pool), and goals are suspended 2m above each goal line. Boats are padded on their bow and stern to prevent injury, and players wear helmets with face masks, and PFDs with additional padding on the sides. You can also ram into other peoples kayaks causing them to roll or put them off.
Although canoes are not used, kayak polo is also know as 'canoe polo'.
