If you are interested in taking a more competitive entry into paddlesports, this is the place for you. Our racing group competes across the UK ranging from 200 meter sprints up to the 125 mile Devizes to Westminster canoe race.



Our introductory sessions for juniors and adults are designed to teach you the main techniques and give you confidence in the boat. We have coaches dedicated specifically to beginner training who will guide and support you as you make your first strokes in a racing kayak or canoe through to a becoming a competitive racer or social paddler. These sessions take place on Saturdays from 10:45-12:00am from April to September. The cost is £10 for adults and £5 for juniors, and is free for PPC Members. Following 4 of these sessions, if you want to take up canoeing as a sport, you can join the club and initially paddle regularly on Saturdays with a beginners group and gain the other benefits of being a full member of the club. As your paddling confidence and capability improves there are other training sessions throughout the week you can join.

Experienced paddlers:

We welcome intermediate and experienced paddlers to attend a ‘come and try us’ session on Saturday morning’s (10:45am) between April and September. Simply come out for a training session with us and see if you like it (no charge, no obligation). If after a few sessions you like the environment we would welcome you joining the club and taking part in all the sessions we run during the week and join the racing squad.
