If you are looking for information about canoe polo, ranging from team tactics to gear maintenance, you have come to the right place.
This blog will be updated from time to time with a new article covering a random canoe polo subject.
If you have suggestions for a topic or want to write something for this blog, feel free to contact me at email@example.com.
Here’s a list of events that could interest the Belgian players. There is also a comment for each of them if the Kajakpolo Shop will have a booth there, just attend (make orders via mail) or won’t be there. (more…)
Are you a customer of ours and want us to accept bank cards? Feel free to leave a comment.
As a small shop, it’s not easy to start accepting cards for payment.
Especially for the Kajakpolo Shop, which operates only several months per year on less than 10 competitions, it’s expensive to use a regular account for accepting cards. Prices are around € 100 per month in rent of the device and the required 4G connection. Including the 1-2% transaction fee, you are looking at about € 700 in costs for accepting about € 6000 in payments, which is ridiculous.
We are currently looking at a new payment provider that works with your tablet or smartphone to allow you to accept payments without renting an expensive device. The Payleven device costs € 79 and connects to your smartphone or tablet. After that, there is a 2.75% transaction fee. Total cost to accept € 6000 in payments: only € 244. The next year even less.
Have a look at Payleven if you have a shop and want to try it yourself.
The Belgian season is at its end.
With the 4th day of canoe polo games over and done, it’s time to count the games and celebrate the victors.
The new team GENT was on track for Belgian Champ since the beginning of the season and they didn’t disappoint. Not a single lost game and thus a flawless record of 42 points from 14 games, there was no stopping them.
It’s a bit surprising that they got beaten for the Belgian Cup.
The podium, however, was a bit shaken compared to last year. MOKKA made second spot before WKV (Champ 2013). In the final games, WKV got beaten by TRITON.
The losing team of this year is WKV 2, dropping to 2nd division next year.
The Champ in 2nd is RKV, well deserved. They too had a flawless record of 24 points from 8 games.
Read a nice writeup here: roeselaresport.be.
The rest of the podium: KNRS & BKK.
AKKC will no longer be playing in 2nd and will be replaced by TNT 2 for next year, congratulations to them for the promotion.
A sport can grow when attracting new players in an existing team, but it can grow even more when attracting entire new teams and clubs.
Here is what you need if you are a canoe polo enthusiast and you want to start a team in your club. It’s a list of gear, organizational support and motivation to get you going. (more…)
The Kajakpolo Shop will have gear at several events, a list is supplied below. There are even more events that we will join but not actively sell, if you want some gear at those events ask us to bring something via mail. (more…)
Every sport with some form of competition needs a referee, canoe polo being no exception.
Referees in canoe polo operate from the shore, giving them a better overview, but they aren’t as close as some other sports, which can be challenging.
