One of the most active sea scout groups in the country, the 6th Itchen Hamble Sea Scouts take part in various adventurous activities as well as playing canoe polo as a sport

At the end of a hardworking season, HugoFox.com sponsored team Hamble Sea Scouts have finished in third place in the BCU South West Youth Canoe Polo League – an excellent result after four challenging games.

On 28th April, the Hamble Sea Scouts polo team came up against six other squads in the final tournament of the season. After two difficult opening matches against Bridgend A and B, the Hamble players pushed back, beating Aberfan by a resounding eight goals before pipping the 1st Nailsea Polo Pirates to the post with a final score of 5-4. Their wins took them up the rankings to come third in the league overall, a great result and an improvement upon January’s league in which they placed a respectable fourth.

Earlier this year, HugoFox.com signed a three-year deal to sponsor Hamble Sea Scouts polo club, and the team now plays in some extremely smart kayaks bearing the plucky fox logo of the local listings website. Always enthusiastic about supporting community teams and projects, HugoFox.com is proud to have taken to the water once again with the Hamble Sea Scouts, especially when they’ve achieved such a fabulous result.

The BCU South West Youth Canoe Polo League is a fantastic opportunity for young people in the area to compete in the exciting sport of canoe polo. If someone you know is interested in playing, why not search for a local club – or if there isn’t one, why not think about starting one? The organisers of the BCU Youth League are looking to expand the league to include more teams, and more participants would be welcomed with open arms… or open paddles!
