Canoe and Kayak


The Canoe and Kayak Club meet on Wednesday afternoons and travel to local venues for coaching, such as Lee Valley White Water Centre - the home for Canoe Slalom events in the London 2012 Olympics. In addition, the club carries out a number of white water trips around the country and also enters a number of Polo, Slalom and Freestyle competitions. All are welcome to join this friendly club, regardless of whether you are a complete novice or an experienced white water paddler.


The Canoe Club compete in various National University Canoe Championships managed by BUCS, NSR and other student events. These include Polo, Slalom, White Water and Freestyle competitions.

Club Trials

There are two weeks of trials and taster sessions which begin in the week following Freshers' Week. These sessions are for new and existing members to train without cost or commitment.

You must pre-register to attend at either the Athletic Union Sports Fair or the SU Fresher’s Fair where you will be given further information.

All members must have signed up to the Club at the end of the two week trial.


The Canoe Club is coached by experienced and qualified coaches who can teach on both flat and white water.
