Give us a try before joining!

We know we are a friendly Club, but don’t take our word for it! Give us a try before you join…

Come and try sessions

Through the summer, we run taster sessions as part of the British Canoeing Go Paddling campaign.  Run by our volunteer coaches, these 2hr sessions give you a taste of paddling. We usually run them on Wednesday evenings.

The cost is £15 per person and they are open to anyone aged 8+. Check out the Events calendar for dates and to book.

Club Taster

If you think that paddling is for you but you are not sure if you want to sign up to the Club, join us on a Sunday paddle. You can book a  Club Taster on any Sunday (April – October) for £15 per person. If you then decide to join, you will get the £15 taken off your membership fee. Use the Events Calendar to book. If you have any questions, email

Pop along on a Sunday

If you want to see what we are like without getting your feet wet, then pop down on a Sunday. You won’t be able to paddle but you can meet some members and see us in action. The slipway at the Barn is public access and you will find us getting onto the water at 9.30am until about 12.30pm each Sunday (April to October).

Bring a friend

If you know someone who is already a member, then they can book you in to join one of our Sunday Club paddles. For just £10, you can experience a full Club session and make use the Club’s equipment. This is limited to two people per Sunday so spaces do need to be booked in advance, by a member. All sessions and Bring a Friend tickets are on the Events calendar.

Join a Club Fun Day

Again, if you know someone who is a member then you can get them to bring you along (for free!) on one of our annual fun days. We have a Juniors’ Day, Friends & Family Day and Big Splash on different Sundays during the summer. Each of these events is full of games, skills and usually tea and cake. Check out the Events calendar for dates. A member will need to book the event.

Pool sessions

The club will be running pool sessions throughout the off-season, usually from January to March. We run a pool session every other Saturday  in Bexhill at the Battle Abbey Preparatory School (TN40 2JG ) starting at 7.30pm -8.30pm. These are joint sessions  shared at the same place with Hastings & District CC who attend on the in between Thursdays at (8.30pm-9.30pm)

This can be booked by non-members for £7 per person (£5 for members). The sessions are open to complete novices, people wanting to get back into the water or paddlers who want to develop a particular skill, such as rolling. Check out the Events calendar for dates and to book.
