What is kayak polo
Kayak polo is a mix of basketball, water polo and kayaking. And it’s a whole lot of fun. Games are open to the public and free for all. No experience is required. We’re happy to teach you what you need to know.
Where we play
We play in Brooklyn Bridge Park right off the Pier 4 beach. Look for our info table on the beach or our boats in the water.
Getting to Brooklyn Bridge Park
Parking is limited so we encourage you to take public transportation. And lucky for you, there are plenty of transportation options.
Subway: 4/5 to Borough Hall, A/C to High Street, F to York Street, or 2/3 to Clark Street stations
Bus: the nearest buses are the B25, B61, B63, B67
NYC Ferry: East River route to Dumbo or South Brooklyn Route to Atlantic Ave/Pier 6
CitiBike: there are CitiBike stations at the north and south entrance to the park
Our most frequently asked questions
Do I have to sign up?
You can join our walk-up kids session at 12:30 pm or our adult session at 2 pm. However, we are limited to 10 people per game so the best way to guarantee you’ll play is to sign up for our Meet-Up session at 10:30 am.
What if I don’t know how to play?
That’s not a problem. We’ll teach you what you need to know. Just be sure to arrive at least 20 minutes early so we can give you a tutorial on the game and the equipment.
Do I need to bring anything?
We provide the helmets, life vests and kayaks. The only thing you need to bring is clothes you’re comfortable getting wet in, sunscreen and water.
