No booking is required, but if you would like to let us know that you are coming and what you would like to try please email: enquiries@shropshirepaddlesport.org 

Our Club

Here at Shropshire Paddlesport we run a professional but informal family orientated club offering opportunities for children and adults at all levels to enjoy paddling in kayaks, canoes and SUP’s in a relaxed and safe environment.

Shropshire Paddlesport is an affiliated British Canoeing not-for-profit club.

Looking to join? 

We run informal coaching sessions on Saturday mornings between 9:30 & 11:30. The cost is £12 for non-members and £1.50 for members. Single membership is £60 per year. For more details go to the Membership Page.

 

Our Vision

Our vision is to inspire and nurture the human spirit, one paddle stroke at a time. Whatever your paddle discipline (kayak, canoe, SUP or racing boat) we will offer continual improvement and recognition for all abilities and all ages in our community. Individuals and families, experienced or new to our sport will be welcomed into our family friendly, community focused Club, caring of its members and the environment they paddle in.

What we do

The modern club house is on an excellent site next to the canal with shower and changing facilities. Saturday morning is offered to anyone who wants to try paddling or improve their skills. The summer progamme includes marathon, kayaking, SUP and open boat evenings. Tours on local rivers and lakes and further afield in Scotland and France.

During the winter months we run regular pool sessions with volunteer coaches teaching and supporting members acquire new skills.
