About Us

Welcoming water sports enthusiasts and beginners alike. We run weekly pool training sessions, regular river trips, canoe polo matches and training courses. We are a friendly dedicated society that caters to all abilities, with coaches who can help you learn in total safety and comfort in the pool and then for the more adventurous, we can guide you down a range of rivers throughout the country. We have a series of trips throughout the year from the ever amazing freshers trip, a range of rivers regularly paddled and then the end of year trip to the Alps. We also compete at BUCS and attend the largest student kayaking festival in Europe, NSR! The club offers chance to learn this exciting sport, be on the university polo teams, get qualifications or even just keep fit, join a great society and have fun whilst you do it.

Remember, you don't have to pay membership before you attend, your first session is ALWAYS free and you can join at ANY point in the year!
