Welcome

ALL CLUB ACTIVITIES AND USE OF EQUIPMENT SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE


After much consideration, to ensure the health and well-being of our members and their friends and families, we have taken the decision to suspend all Club activities and use of Club Equipment until further notice. 


We will continue to monitor the situation and review our policy over the next weeks.
 
Club activities include: 
Weekly Pool Sessions, 
River Thames weekly paddles, 
Lee Valley Club training sessions, 
use of Club boats for Location Events including training and racing, 
along with access to our container and use of all Club Equipment and kit.
 
To ensure that we are able to maintain PBCC's policy of promoting the Government’s advice of 
'non-essential' social contact for 12 weeks I shall be temporarily changing the locks on the containers to ensure that all of our equipment is kept safe and free from potential, unintentional, contamination from Covid-19.
I have been unable to purchase sanitizers and disinfectant to clean our equipment including lights, paddles, boats, doors, locks etc, hence we are taking this drastic action.

Best wishes to you all

London’s kayak club for paddling on the Thames, on white water, pool training and sea kayaking. 
We are a friendly London canoe club who welcome all those interested in canoeing and kayaking; from beginners to experienced paddlers, paddling fanatics or just warm weather fans.

We are probably London’s most active kayak club for paddling; on the Thames, sea kayaking, rivers and Lee Valley whitewater course.

We have weekly pool training sessions for those new to the sport, or wanting to improve. Paddle trips are organised all year round from our base by the river Thames.

Follow these steps to join us:

1. As a newcomer to the Club first come along to our weekly pool session. If you are a beginner you will be taught basic safety drills and rescues. Normally 3 sessions is sufficient for you to become competent. If you have prior kayaking experience this will be quicker.

2. After completing the safety drills go to our Membership system to provisionally join the Club. You are allowed one month and two Thames sessions with the Club before payment is due.



3. After joining the club, you will receive email invitations to paddle with us on our Saturday morning and Thursday evening Thames trips.

4. Once you are used to paddling on the Thames, progress to paddling on white water rivers, sea kayaking and surfing.


The Club has everything you need to go touring on the Thames; you just need to bring suitable clothes.
But don't forget to return to the pool to acquire and improve on skills such as for eskimo rolling. paddle techniques and advanced rescues.
The club has members from all over London, as well as from the local areas of Putney, Fulham, Hammersmith, Wandsworth and Chelsea.
We are always keen to welcome new members and are British Canoeing affiliated.
