Local Canoe Clubs
Canoe Clubs in the North West, Midlands and North Wales
Canoe clubs are a fantastic way to get into the sport of kayaking, canoeing and stand up paddle boarding. All the staff here at Manchester Canoes are either active members of local clubs, or took their first steps into the world of paddlesport through the club scene. Signing up to your local club can give many benefits, including instruction and coaching in paddling techniques, right through to safe practise and rescue scenarios.
Clubs are also a great way to meet up with experienced, fellow paddlers and join onto trips on local waterways or further afield. Most clubs will also have basic equipment available for members to loan when attending club sessions on open water, and during the winter months a safe learning environment- the swimming pool!
Some clubs are suited towards juniors or families, others are for adults only. Some clubs cover a broad range of paddlesport activities and disciplines, whereas some specialise in specific areas such as white water, touring or sea kayaking. Others might have competitive branches of the club and train and compete in areas such as slalom, marathon racing or canoe polo.
