Club Sessions

We hold weekly sessions on a Saturday at 13:00 and we usually finish around 15:00.These sessions are suitable for everyone from novice to experienced paddlers, and is an ideal time to come along and give it a try.

Please bring spare clothing, wear clothes that you do not mind getting wet and a warm drink in a flask if you have one. We will supply all the necessary equipment required for you to have a fun safe day.

Through the summer months we hold additional sessions on a Wednesday evenings at 18:00 however we cannot always guarantee coach cover so these sessions are suitable for more experienced paddlers.

During the winter months we hold pool sessions at the Wentworth leisure centre in Hexham. We hold 2 sessions on a Friday evening for members to improve their skills with coaching in a warm safe environment.
