Hexham Canoe Club #ShePaddles

Women and girls 

Why not come to Hexham Canoe club and give paddling a go?  It’s great fun, and is fantastic exercise in a supportive and non-competitive environment.

If you’ve ever wanted to try stand up paddleboarding (SUP) or kayaking, want to improve your skills, or just want to paddle with a friendly group , please get in touch via, and one of our female instructors will get in touch.

We welcome women and girls to all our mixed sessions, and we run women-led, women-only sessions over the summer in stand up paddleboarding and kayaking.  The women-only sessions take place in small groups to ensure that participants get maximum support and benefit from the instructors.


All equipment is provided (paddleboards, kayaks, buoyancy aids, helmets etc), and we have a changing room available.  Please watch the Hexham Canoe Club Facebook page for information on when the sessions are taking place, and on how to book.   


Hexham Canoe Club is taking part in the British Canoeing #ShePaddles initiative which aims to increase the number of women and girls involved in the paddling community.  See for more information.  Hexham Canoe Club is joining British Canoeing’s mission to encourage women and girls to participate in the paddlesport community. 

See you on the water!
