Brief Description of Club Activities

We are a friendly and welcoming Club and have lots to offer the most dedicated paddler or social member.  We go on many recreational weekend trips to different parts of the UK throughout the year, as well as frequent training to compete in two national BUCS Competitions.  Our Club also has an active social scene, organising regular themed socials most Wednesday nights.


Meeting Days, Times and Venues

Training takes place at various locations on Wednesday afternoons with some weekend sessions for more advanced paddlers.

Training takes place on Tuesday and Friday mornings at Newburn Watersports Centre and we also have weekly pool sessions at Gosforth Pool on Tuesdays from 7.00 p.m. until 9.00 p.m.

Pre-Requisites for new members (e.g. previous experience, basic certificates, etc)

No previous experience required.  All abilities welcome. Must be able to tread water for a minimum of 60 seconds and swim 2 pool lengths (50m). 

All specialist equipment for training and weekend trips is provided for all participants.  You may also use your own personal equipment.
