Canoeing For All

No Barriers, No Excuses, Get Out There and Have Fun

You are never too old

This is Richard Davis, he is 80-years-old and he races slalom.

Please do not tell us you are too old!

He is not alone in being active in retirement; Susan Templeton is regularly seen in action across the Country paddling slalom and Wild Water Racing.

Although by Richard’s standards qualifying you for a bus pass makes you a junior, Susan is only in her sixties.

Young or old, you have a lot to offer and a lot to gain from each other Danny and Sam enjoy a break between races.

Seventy-something Danny in action at the Nene, being watched from above in the double boat by Mr and Mrs Moore, yes, it is a sport you can do together. And what couple does not want a bit of action and excitement in their lives?

Maybe you want to start off at a slower pace, enjoy some recreation, we have something a bit slower for you.

Our family recreation sessions at Osterley are certainly a bit more gentle and suitable for people of all ages and all abilities.

Our Open Canoes are the ideal choice for those who are not so sure, safe stable and a little more recreational, plus they go where you want them to.

Havelock Web

The Open Canoes are also ideal for families.

At our Summer sessions at both Southall (Havelock Road) and Park Royal/Harlesden, we will have Open canoes available and we want to see families and people of all ages joining in having fun, keeping fit and mixing together.

We do of course encourage youngsters

BA9E00BD-A71A-4F17-95E7-68300CE87E1E

They can either come along and join in the family fun sessions and share a boat or maybe they prefer a bit of independence and want to go on their own.

We teach all ages and to all standards, we have very young and some not so young and all ages in between.
