Stand-up paddle polo (SUP polo) is a type of SUP. This sport uses symmetrical paddle boards, which differ from those used in conventional SUP and which enable the players to change direction more easily. The parts of the paddles usually used for propulsion are both concave and convex.

An SUP polo match has three players for each team at any given time. A player scores a point by hitting the ball into the goal using only his or her paddle. 

Playing this game is recommended only if the participants are well versed in SUP (in particular balance and paddling).
