If your New to the club or canoeing then the come and try sessions once a month are where to start.
Sunday afternoon social paddle (Summer months):
The main paddling session in the week for the bulk of the members is the Sunday afternoon session.

These sessions are mainly for people with basic paddling skills but want a bit more practice on the flat water or just fancy a gentle paddle on the river Nene.
We provide a Duty Instructor who is able to look after people who are not of a “Paddle Explore” or 2 star standard.
If you are a Paddle explore or 2 star standard your able to all go out paddling as a group (min 3) and often the Duty Instructor will come along as well to look after those that are not of that ability.
Just turn up with light weight clothes, a wind-proof cag and trainers. we have a range of boats and other safety equipment ie buoyancy aid, helmet paddle etc. available for you to use.
There is no cost to this session for members of the club and it is also a great time for potential members to come and see how it all works and talk to our coaches and other members.
White water Fridays (summer months):
This is a members only session.
Once a month we hire the Nene White Water centre for 2 hours to allow you to practice your moving water skills.
This is a coached session (if you are competent on the white water you can go it alone) where you will be split into groups depending on ability where you are able to learn the skills needed for real rivers and to just have fun.
This is for members and needs booking in advance via the online shop.

Friday night pool sessions (Winter months):
During the winter months, the club runs sessions at the Mounts Swimming pool (see map below) from 8:30 to 10pm. These sessions are ideal for paddlers of all abilities: beginners can get a feel of the sport in a safe environment and can learn safety drills in nice, clean, warm water while more advanced paddlers can practice support strokes and perfect their roll. It is also a nice occasion to get to know club members and have a chat.
