Pool Sessions

The pool sessions are a fantastic way to discover kayaking in a warm and clean environment.  There will be at least one BC qualified coach, or experienced paddler, and usually two, available at the session to teach the basics of kayaking. 

Sessions are open to the general public who are over 18 years old and can swim 50 meters. 

Places at the next session MUST BE BOOKED. There is a limited amount of kit and space in the pool.

Please note that if you turn up without booking you are likely to be turned away.

We usually go to a nearby pub afterwards.It’s a great opportunity to meet some of our members and find out more about the club and how to get involved.


Non-members:  If you would like to attend the next session then please contact us.


Members:  may book directly via Book your Place.
