About Us
Paddling for all ages in the Chilterns.
Mission Statement
To provide paddlesport opportunities for adults and youngsters in Tring and the surrounding towns and villages of the Chillterns.

Club History

Chiltern Canoe Group was formed in 2008 by a small group of friends to provide an opportunity to paddle on a regular basis in an informal, friendly environment. Some activities are based around weekly sessions at the RAF Halton swimming pool and Tring Swimming Pool but we include trips to various rivers around the country. Members are  interested in white water kayaking, sea kayaking, open canoeing and kayak surfing and anything else that can be paddled so all these disciplines of the sport are catered for and encouraged  well. In 2011 the Group decided to form a British Canoeing affiliated club and so in March 2011 the name was changed to Chiltern Canoe Club.

General Club Policies
Social paddling events are organised throughout the year.
Club coaches offer training to juniors and adults – to develop independent paddlers.
The club will endeavour to make paddlesports available and accessible to all.
The coaches and committee will actively manage the risks associated with the locations used and the activities carried out.
Club boats and associated kit will be available to members for social paddling on local water and for hire for trips.
The committee will source funds for the club from grants and membership subscriptions – not from financial borrowing.
