Are there additional costs to pay?

If you’re a Member additional costs will only be incurred if you attend training courses and pool sessions.

Does the Club do other types of paddling?

Yes many of our members do whitewater, sea, canoeing and surf, etc.

I’ve never kayaked before but would like to give it a go, can I come along?

Of course come along to one of our pool sessions at the Citadel Leisure Centre. When you arrive tell one of these friendly faces that you are new and we will get you started and teach you all the basics.

I’m not sure if kayaking is for me, can I try before I join the club?

Of course, we hope that you will enjoy the kayaking, the club, the company, and the socials. However in case kayaking really isn’t for you, everyone is welcome to come to a couple of pool sessions to try it out before they become members.

When should I buy my own kit, and where from?

The club is primarily here to support and help new kayakers get into the sport, for that reason we have a range of kit to help beginners as they start out in the sport. However we also encourage members to buy their own kit both in-order to get the kit best suited to them, and to free up club kit for newer members.If you are considering buying your own kit have a look at our kit guide.
