SUP POLO Stand Up Paddle Polo, or just SUP Polo, is a new sport being introduced in Estonia by Suppama. It does exactly what it says: Combines water polo with stand up paddling. And it’s fun! Really, really fun! SUP Polo is best described as a cross between water polo, lacrosse and a destruction derby, all played out on inflatable boards inside an inflatable field. The game is short, fast, mildly chaotic and awesomely entertaining. The complete package includes the awesome inflatable field & goals along with very special SUP polo paddles. There’s even a specialised SUP Polo board design. The rules of SUP Polo are pretty simple: The field is 25×20 metres and it’s three-a-side. You’ve gotta use your paddle to get the ball into the net in order to score. You can’t handle the ball while you’re on your knees or in the water, which is an important point to note because you WILL be in the water during SUP Polo. The halves are usually around 5 minutes each, which sounds short but will seriously tax your lungs: This game is not only fun, it’s also a hell of a good workout. We will introduce this crazy game already this summer all around Estonia!
