Prospective members are welcome to join at any time regardless of ability. Annual membership is a rolling membership which entitles you to use club equipment and facilities. If you’re thinking of joining, please drop us a line first (see contact-us) so we know to expect you and can arrange an induction. Those new to paddling will need to attend coach-led sessions to attain the Discover paddling award.


  • Standard membership is £50 per year
  • Family membership is £135 per year and covers up to 4 members


Juniors 12 years or over (or those in year 7 or above at school) are welcome to join provided they are accompanied by an adult family member.
