Welcome

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 Olympic white water 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 experience this will be a quick check

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.


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.
