Join Winchester Canoe Club

The club focuses on training members from beginners to independent paddlers. We currently do not offer taster sessions, but encourage member applications from those who are willing to learn about paddling and build their skills so they can look after themselves and others while enjoying being on the water.

Joining the club provides access to free coaching to achieve British Canoeing Start and Discover awards, and organises other courses such as the Explore award, 1st Aid and Foundation Safety and Rescue Training.

We run beginners courses regularly through the year in groups, starting with an assessment of where you are at, progressing over 3-4 sessions to your Discover assessment. All sessions are run at the club in Winchester on Sundays between 10-12 over the year.

We're welcoming new members if you have prior experience, and can assess where you are up to. Please email our membership secretary asking for an assessment with one of our coaches to bypass the beginners course.
