BugPolo is a game played during the Christchurch winter within an indoor 25m aquatic sport pool. Players sit in a River Bug and propel themselves with fins on their feet as their means of forward movement.It’s a cross between the games of netball, water polo, and backwards walking.

A great social sport for mixed teams of young and old. Many teams have parent and children combinations, high school and tertiary student groups, work groups, and the group just wanting to try something different for a competitive laugh.

2018 Registration is now open.
