Welcome to Castle Canoe Club

The Castle Canoe Club is an open and friendly adult canoe and kayak club. We welcome everyone from beginners to the more experienced paddler.

New: There are now two routes to paddling with us:

  • We are resuming induction sessions for non-members. This includes a couple of additional sessions so you can decide whether or not to join.
  • If you meet certain conditions, you can join straight away.

    Once you’re a member, you can:

    • Use a wide range of kayaks, canoes and paddle-boards that we provide… or bring your own.
    • Paddle in our club hours (usually 3 hours on Sunday mornings and 2 hours on summer Tuesday evenings).
    • Paddle in outside club hours (for a fee) is available).
    • Meet, socialise and get tips from other members who are out paddling.
    • Train and play canoe polo. Our active group trains and plays at each session and welcomes new players.
    • Use our slalom gates.
    • Come on trips (including whitewater and sea kayaking).
    • Take part in courses that we run and get a discount on courses run by the West Reservoir Centre
    • Bring guests (limited, and for a fee)
    • Hire equipment for the week or weekend.

    If you would like to be informed when we start to run inductions sessions, please enter your email address below. Note: you will only be added if you confirm via the automated email that will be sent to you. Please check your spam folder if you don’t get it.
