Have a look at the exciting disciplines we do:

Marathon Racing

Start of the division 4 race at Elmbridge

Distances start at a couple of miles for beginners and juniors, but as you improve the standard improves and the races get longer. Division 1 ranking races are about 13 miles. There are also a number of non-ranking challenges and descents races. Total fun.

Check out how we did in our last race, on our Marathon News Page.

We have a number of experienced Marathon Coaches at the Club and have a growing Marathon Team.



Our Slalom Team is based at Harefield on the moving water and gates we have opposite the Coy Carp pub. In recent years we have been steadily progressing and growing our team, under the direction of our specialist Slalom Coach, Rick Moore.

We have had a good start to 2021 in slalom, you can check out our Slalom News Page.



Another discipline we are expanding and growing, with the intention of being able to challenge at national level and you could be part of that team. We have some top quality kit, now we need you to become our top quality paddlers.

Wild Water Racing


The Discipline we have had most success in to date, we have even produced a home grown international paddler. Could you be our next?
