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.

Sunday, 14th August: Club paddling
10:00-13:00: Regular paddling session for members.

Tuesday, 16th August: Club paddling
18:00-20:00: Regular paddling session for members.

Sunday, 21st August: Club paddling
10:00-13:00: Regular paddling session for members.

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.

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 during our club hours: 10:00-13:00 on Sunday morning.
  • Paddle outside club hours (for an additional fee) – contact the West Reservoir Centre directly.
  • 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.

You can also join our Facebook group and (if you need to) email us.
