Jack Playford – GB u’21 Canoe Polo & Meridian E Canoe Polo Club

Jack is proof that hard work does pay off. And, as evidence, he has a World Championship gold medal to show for it as part of the GB u21 Canoe Polo Team. To top that, he finished as the tournament top scorer in the ICF event held in Sicily, Italy.

His close season training regime consists of 4 boat sessions and 6 gym sessions per week. This steps up to 12 boat sessions per week during the season – combined with his studies at Beths Grammar School.

Jack started Canoe Polo at 12 when a local teacher, a former GB international spotted his potential. He quickly moved on to the local club Meridian Canoe Club. The team gained 4 back to back promotions and now play in the top flight in England. It’s a busy schedule as the programme includes events throughout Europe most weekends.

We supply Jack with his training gear from our Zeon Gym collection.
