Shoulder Health For Kayaking

Shoulder injuries - both chronic and acute - are common in our sport. This video gives some insight into how it happens and how to prevent them - aimed specifically at WW paddlers, but useful info for all of us. 


Access to the Clubhouse

The club committee has agreed new policies for increased access to our clubhouse. These give requiremnts for the use of  Changing Rooms, Up Stairs Toilets, Kitchen and Gym Equipment. The new policies can be downloaded from the COVID-19 Information page, please read these and follow the instruction when you use the clubhouse. There are restrictions on the number of people who can use each area and to control this a system using tokens has been introduced. There is also signage to inform you of the requiremnts. Please be aware that the COVID-19 restrictions are still changing both nationally and locally so these new access rules may have to change or if it becomes clear they are not being followed by club members.

... and that's a wrap

The last of our 2020 beginner courses is over - congratulations to everyone who learned to paddle with us this year, and a huge "thank you" to all the coaches who made it possible during what has been a trying year!  Mike L, John S, Ewan S, Wally S, Alan N, Mark H, and anyone else who has helped out - you've been stars!

Season Finale

Our final two courses of the season are now available for booking - one starting September 17th, and one on September 24th.  Please see here for details and to book online.


Sunday 13th September - Advance Warning

We will be holding a litter pick on the Meday from East Farleigh to Allington on Sunday morning between 9:00 and 13:00 as part of the Great British Spring Clean campaign. There wil be approx 28 club members using the club in four groups arriving at 15 min intervals from 9:00 till 9:45. If you can avoid using the club during these times it would be much appreciated. Many of the participants are new club members so will need club boats. We will also require all 4 club canoes. Thank you for your co-operation.

Last-minute course availability

Two spaces have opened up on our beginner course tomorrow, Wednesday 2nd September.  This is one of the final courses of the season, so get in quick!
