WATCH: Canoe polo – Stellenbosch farm children paddle to success

Playing canoe polo helps some of the children relax and forget about stress.

Three times a week, children living on farms in Stellenbosch gather at a small damn on Polkadraai Road to play canoe polo.

This sport is water polo, played on canoes.

“Playing canoe polo helps me relax, to get rid of my stress,” says Camurin Abrahams, one of the team’s strongest players.
