It was the eighth time New Zealand Canoe Polo Association won the trophy in the ninth edition of the event that takes place every two years after the Kiwi teams won most of the events.

The Julian Carter Cup is the perpetual trophy awarded at these championships and is named after former Australian canoe polo committee secretary, Julian Carter, a major force behind Australia’s first tour of New Zealand by junior teams in the early 1990s and New Zealand’s first visit to Australia in 1991. The cup recognises the strength of canoe polo across all categories.

Congratulations to all athletes who took part in the 2019 Oceania Canoe Polo Championships,  which were an exceptional display of friendly rivalry and determined competitiveness.

We congratulate the New Zealand Canoe Polo Association in retaining the Julian Carter Memorial Trophy.

The next Oceania Canoe Polo Championships will be held in New Zealand in 2021.Photo Thanks to NZL Canoe Polo
