Try-it Days

Starter Sessions are an excellent introduction to canoeing. They are open to everyone, from eight years old to eighty years young! You don’t need any previous canoeing experience, specialist kit or skills… just turn up and have a go!

If you've been canoeing before, Starter Sessions are also a great opportunity to find out what Addlestone Canoe Club has to offer. Perhaps it's been a while since you were last out on the water, or maybe you want to share your passion and introduce family and friends to the sport.

Whatever your motivation, Starter Sessions provide an ideal opportunity to get out on the water and get paddling.

Check our Events Calendar page for details about the next Try-it days. If you're interested, or if you have further questions then please don't hesitate to contact us.
