Paddle with us! If you're thinking of joining Maidstone Canoe Club and learning to paddle, you're in the right place! This 4-week Beginner's Course is designed to give you the basic skills to control the boat. Once you've completed the course, you'll have the confidence and abilities to join us on our trips, tours, and regular paddles on the Medway and beyond.
Please note that courses must be pre-booked. We are no longer running "open" sessions - all novice paddlers must attend one of our Introductory Courses. Please see this page for details.
Full details of the courses and how to get involved in paddling at the Club are available on this page - please take a look if you haven't already done so.
Our courses cost £25, and are run by our friendly qualified coaches. They consist of four 2-hour sessions. (Note the cost is £25 for the whole course - not £25 per session!)
Your coaches for this Course will be Niki Norman, Rowan Speers and Mark Corti. The dates for this course are:
If you can't attend one of the sessions, please let one of the coaches know and we'll try to fit you in another time. Please arrive at 5:30pm - we will aim to be on the water by 6:00pm.
