COVID-19 Situation

The COVID-19 situation is changing daily and as a club, we continue to monitor developments. Currently, we have closed our pool sessions, cancelled trips and events and have our training programme under review in line with advice from the Government and British Canoeing.

Get Involved – have a go at Kayaking or Canoeing

We love messing about in boats and it’s our mission to share that enjoyment as widely as possible. We run a variety of regular paddling sessions to encourage newcomers to paddlesport – from easy river trips to swimming pool sessions. For a small fee, we provide all the equipment you need to enjoy yourself safely.
