Chiltern Canoe Club

Paddling for all ages in the Chilterns.

Members of the club use various paddle craft and undertake a variety of activities – with a focus on enjoyment, rather than competition. To support this, the club offers classes to both adults and children in various disciplines and organises social activities throughout the year.

NOTE: some activities are paused during COVID-19 restrictions.

These will suit any child from approximately 9 years old, depending on size and strength.Courses for kayaking are run at Sportspace Tring Swimming Pool, Mortimer Hill.

SUPs aren't just for summer! On these crisp winter days, you just need the right clothes. Here's one of our members exploring a bit of flow, on the Wendover Arm of the Grand Union Canal, I think.

Although club activities are suspended during the current lockdown, many of our members are getting out on the water for exercise, either on their own if they’re competent or in pairs for company. Here’s a nice autumnal pic of the grand union canal near Tring.
