Stay up to date on NYKP’s latest scheduled events at our page!

NYKP hosted the 2024 Paddling Film Festival World Tour on Thursday, May 2, in Brooklyn! If you missed it, or want to watch films we didn’t have time to screen, you can rent them at the Paddling Film Festival website!

Thank you Greenpoint Beer & Ale for providing an amazing venue, Trak Kayaks for sponsoring, and our auction item sponsors: CPS, Immersion Research, NY Distilling Co., Movement LIC climbing gym (formerly The Cliffs), and NY Adventure Club! We also loved the opportunity to show a clip from a hyper-local paddling film about environmental stewardship and advocacy in NYC, Waterways of Hope.

New York Kayak Polo club is devoted to developing and promoting the sport of Kayak Polo (also known as Canoe Polo) in the New York City area. Everybody is welcome to come and learn this exciting sport!

Kayak Polo is a team sport, played with five players per team in specially designed kayaks on calm water. The object of the game is to score goals in a net suspended 2 meters above the water. It is a fast and active team sport, similar to both basketball and water polo, and a great way to improve boat-handling skills and rolling.

We welcome people of all ages, ability, and experience levels. Learn about the game of kayak polo, our programs (introductory, new-player, and regular sessions), schedules, and club membership. Also check out upcoming kayak polo events and tournaments where NYKP members are competing!

Come and play with us. Your first session is free!

New York Kayak Polo is a 100% volunteer-run 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
