About Us

Avon Canoe Polo Club and Bristol Canoe Club founded Canoe Polo Facilities Association in May 2014 to manage the outdoor pitch we set up in Bristol floating harbour after two years of joint work with both clubs and the Harbourmaster. At an AGM in May 2016 it was agreed to change the name to Bristol Canoe Polo Pitch.

The purpose of the association is to manage the outdoor pitch at minimal cost to members and regular users, and to support the development of canoe polo. This means that charges for members and regular users are set just to cover the costs of the equipment and any docks licences.

Our ambitious vision is for international tournaments in the Cumberland Basin, numerous pitches, stadium seating, changing rooms, club house / pavilion, display screens, boats and other kit available for cheap hire, and more.
