The Dublin Canoe Polo League is typically run as 2 x 16 week leagues , during the Autumn and Spring of each year. The league is normally run as 4 divisions, each with 7 teams, Teams play each other twice in each league. Since the pool is smaller than the standard length the format is played as 4-a-side instead of 5, and games are played as 8 mins per half.

The league is very competitive, with a varying level of ability throughout from most players in the top division will have experience playing internationally, through to players in the bottom division that are learning the basics of boat and ball control in the safety of a heated swimming pool.

The league is played weekly on Saturday evenings between 6.30pm - 10.30pm at Tallaght Sports Complex.
