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. Experienced paddlers are on hand at regular sessions and we organise various courses throughout the year. Our active canoe polo group train and play each club session. We also run trips (including whitewater and sea kayaking) throughout the year.

We’re based at the West Reservoir Centre just off Green Lanes in Stoke Newington (N4 2HA). We have access to a large selection of equipment and excellent modern changing facilities.

You must either be a member of our club or sign up to one of our induction session to paddle here. We’re open Sundays 10:00-13:00 and Tuesdays 18:00-20:00. Members can also paddle at other times for £10 if available – call (020) 8442 8116.
