Come and Try

If you would like to try out canoeing why not take part in one our our "Come and Try" sessions.

There is no age restriction, but you must be able to swim 50 metres or, if disabled, be happy to go underwater. Young people will need the permission of their parents or guardians to attend sessions. We ask that parents stay on site during the session. For safety reasons, we also ask that you advise the club if you suffer from any medical condition that we should be aware of.

Please contact us at and one of the committee members will get back to you with details of our  "Come and Try" Sessions, or in the summer you are welcome to attend our Tuesday night club sessions.  Please arrive no later than 6:15 if you are new to the club.

For summer sessions we recommend that you wear thin layers of clothing, preferably man-made fibres as these don't absorb too much water. A thin cagoule on top is ideal. Bring a changes of clothes with you and a towel! If you have an old pair of pumps for your feet, that's great otherwise we may have a pair of water shoes to fit you.

Come and Try sessions cost £5 which includes all safety equipment, use of boats and instruction by British Canoeing Qualified Club members
