=== Pitch ===
Canoe polo is played either indoors in swimming pools or outdoors on a pitch which should measure 35 meters by 23 meters.<ref>[http://www.canoeicf.com/dms/icf/documents/Disciplines/CAP/Rules/Appendix-3---Field_Diagram/Appendix%203%20-%20Field_Diagram.pdf ICF field diagram] {{webarchive|url=https://web.archive.org/web/20131203043527/http://www.canoeicf.com/dms/icf/documents/Disciplines/CAP/Rules/Appendix-3---Field_Diagram/Appendix%203%20-%20Field_Diagram.pdf |date=2013-12-03 }}</ref> The boundaries of the pitch are ideally marked using [[floating rope]]s (similar to lane markers in swimming), although for smaller venues the edges of the pool are frequently used.
 
The area approximately 6&nbsp;meters in front of each the goal can be defined as the Zone. This area is where defending players create formations to defend the goal from attackers.
