NWC Provisional Dates
Dear all, as part of the BCU’s Go canoeing activities the club is looking to run a Novice Canoe Polo tournament at the Club’s 2 pitch facility in Collingwood Dock on Saturday 1st June start time 1000 a.m.
The event is open to all club members and any other interested individuals or groups. Our focus is on promoting the event as an all welcoming event and we would wish as many participants to take part as is practical.
In the absence of personal kit the club will make it’s Competition equipment available on the day.
The club is committed to helping a local cause so whilst there will be a nominal charge to enter the majority if not all of the proceeds will be donated.
We intend to promote the event within the NW region preference of places will be given to those local teams who committed and played at the Crosby event.
Interested?then please get in touch asap if you would please so that we can sort out the admin and logistical arrangements.
The Crosby and Collingwood events will be an opportunity to ascertain those novice club members suitable who would wish to participate in the Liverpool International the following weekend 8th and 9th June.
The first season of the North West & Central Regional League is now complete.
Many thanks to our divisional organisers Matt Carter, Anthony Kingdon and Claire & Steve Brewer, without their hard work running these leagues would not be possible. Thank you also to all of the teams for entering and competing, and everyone who helped run the tables, referee, and filled in at various tournaments. I do hope you enjoyed yourselves and found the competitions rewarding.
The winners of the North West & Central Regional Leagues 1st season are;
Division 1 Winners: Pennine B Runners Up: Viking X
Division 2 Winners: Loughborough Students Runners Up: Notts A
Division 3 Winners: LUCC Runners Up: Manchester Wildcatz Youth
Division 4 Winners: Lakeland CC Runners Up: Manchester Wildcatz Ladies
There are a number of changes planned for next season, including the splitting of Division 4 into two more localised divisions based at Cheadle, Manchester for the NW and Derby for the Midlands. We are also expecting another 10 new teams to enter the league next season at a variety of levels. This should create more competitive divisions and hopefully make your continued participation more enjoyable and worthwhile. If you have any comments or suggestions on the past season please get in touch so we can look at improving the leagues further.
I hope you are beginning to look forward to next season already. We are aiming to have the 2013/14 season entry forms released within a month’s time.
Building on the great success over the last 12 months we are happy to announce that for the 2013/14 season, the North West & Central canoe polo regional league will be expanded from 34 to 42 teams.
This change allows us to split division 4 into two regional divisions, to shorten travel time for teams just starting out in the sport.
Following this expansion, we also hope to bring competitive canoe polo to another new indoor venue, again widening the reach of our sport in terms of possible audience and usable facilites. More information and updates coming soon!
The first season of the NW & C league is now over two thirds complete. So far the leagues have seen plenty of close fought & competitive games in every division.
At this stage of the season, due to having completed all of the division 2 tournament dates, we can crown the first divisional winner of the year. Congratulations to our inaugural Division 2 champions Loughborough who completed the entire season undefeated. To see the final league table, please click here.
