Canoeing is a sport for all, and the club generally welcomes members of all ages.  However at the moment, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the club is not accepting inexperienced new members until May 2022.

From now until May 2022, new members need to own their own kayak.  To join the club they will need to demonstrate that they have at least Paddle Discover skills in a kayak at a key assessment, including  capsizing and rescuing themselves and all equipment to the shore.  There is currently no capacity for new members to store their boats at the club.

To join the club, you need to fulfil one of the following criteria:

  • take part in a try-it session (first Wednesday of the month – book one here)
  • show us a 1*/Paddlepower Passport Certificate or above
  • demonstrate you have at least 1*/Paddlepower Passport skills at a key assessment (first Wednesday of the month – book one here)

Prospective members can download a club constitution and acceptance of rules forms here.  It is important that all members sign the form/s agreeing to comply with the clubs rules and constitution.

They will also need to complete (in duplicate) an annual membership form, available from a committee member on a Wednesday evening, and hand that, together with the acknowledgement of compliance with club rules form to a committee member (together with payment by cheque or cash) for counter-signing.

Renewals for existing members

Click here to go to our Webcollect page.  If you weren’t a member last year, once you have renewed your subs please email the membership secretary to let us know, as the system will automatically add a year on to when you were last a member rather than the current year – thus human intervention will be needed!
