Welcome to Castle Canoe Club

The Castle Canoe Club is an open and friendly adult canoe club for those that want to paddle canoes, kayaks and paddleboards. We welcome everyone from beginners to the more experienced paddler.

You need to be a member to paddle with us. If you are not a member, you need to do an induction session regardless of your paddling experience. The induction will tell you more about the club, how things work and where things go. It also includes two additional sessions which you can come to, to help you decide whether or not to join. Once you’ve done induction, you can join.

Members can paddle during our club hours (10:00-13:00 on Sunday mornings all year and Tuesdays 18:00-20:00 in Summer) and use a wide range of kayaks, canoes and paddle-boards provided. Members can also come on trips (river, whitewater, sea; see calendar; and hire boats if needed), come on occasional courses, get a discount on courses run by the West Reservoir Centre, and bring guests (limited, and for a fee).

Coming up…

Sunday, 3rd March: Club paddling
10:00-13:00: Regular paddling session for members.

Monday, 4th March: Club pool session
20:00-21:15 (best arrive at 19:45): Learn some paddle skills, learn to T-rescue, practice controlled capsizing and/or learn to roll in a nice, warm and safe environment in the shiny new training pool at the Britannia Leisure Centre. There’ll be the opportunity for being coached in other paddle skills – you don’t have to try capsizing or rolling!
You must book to attend. Wear t-shirts and shorts/leggings over swimwear; goggles and nose clip might also be useful. For all levels of experience including beginners. Beer at the Rosemary Branch pub after.
