Play a friendly game of Kayak Netball for Fitness and Fun!

Kayak Netball is a fun kayak fitness game our North Sydney Kayaker’s have been playing for fitness and fun, for nearly two years now. With two teams of up to five kayakers, the objective is to score a goal, using the game ball, in one of two floating nets.

Participants are not allowed to paddle if in possession of the ball, and they cannot hold onto the ball for more than three seconds. This is a fast paced game, allowing players to exercise their core muscles and get a really good, heart pumping cardio session at the same time.
Games are always friendly and are usually played in Lavender Bay, North Sydney, making it popular for corporates to play after a long day in the office (6.15pm). You don’t need to sign up with a team, just sign-up and turn up and we’ll coach you and make sure you enjoy the game.

About Kayak Netball:

• Kayak Netball requires two teams of up to five players.
• There are two floating goals/nets set up in the water.
• We play 4x 10 minute rounds, changing sides at half time.
• The winning team is the team with most goals scored.
• You cannot paddle if you are in possession of the ball.
• You have three seconds to pass the ball to a teammate or dribble/throw the
ball two kayak lengths away from you. You can then chase the ball whilst your
teammates get into position.
• You can use your paddle to defend, by blocking the ball when it is in mid-air
and you can use your paddle to bring the ball closer to you if it is in the
• You cannot hit other players with your paddle. It is a non-contact sport.
• You are not allowed to hover around the goal. Keeping a good kayak length
away from it to defend is acceptable.
• You cannot touch or move the goals and you cannot hold on to others kayaks
when they are chasing the ball (yes, people have tried to do this).
• Play fair and have fun!
