What sport is this on Molonglo Reach?

MC has sent these in:

I was cycling around Lake Burley Griffin and saw this at Molonglo Reach.

I’d love to know what the sport is?

My best guess – stand-up paddle boarding polo?!

Whatever it may be, it seems the local cormorants are practicing their goalkeeping skills.

It is canoepolo. Great fun from teens to grannies. Look it up at the Burley Griffin Canoe Club website. We use to play games wednesday evening in the Tuggeranong swimming pool, but from December games will be played at Molonglo Reach, at least for the warmer periods. Contact James Harmer through the BGCC website for training and game times and further information.

Canoe Polo is played with short stubby kayaks.

The goals (measuring 1 metre high by 1.5 metres wide) are a frame with a net, suspended 2 metres above the water.

and its right by the Canoe Club

Looks like something the shag has set up.
