Established in 2014, Canoe Avon has a strong pedigree of paddling in the Saltford area having formed from the merger of Griffon Canoe Club and Globe 360. Griffon Canoe Club, solely a canoe and kayak racing club operated from where we’re based today, while Globe 360, largely a white water and life guarding club met at the Saltford Shallows a few strokes downstream.
Canoe Avon is proud to have such a great heritage and offer a range of exciting disciplines for our members.
We meet regularly for training on Wednesday evenings at Saltford Rowing Centre between April and October. Members can also access facilities at other times and we try to coordinate a number of trips throughout the year. Monthly pool sessions are also available to members.
Canoe Avon is an Unincorporated Association entirely run by volunteers and managed through an Executive Committee in accordance with the club’s constitution.
Canoe Avon is affiliated to British Canoeing.
