Hinckley Canoe Club is a small, friendly, local Canoeing, Kayaking and SUP (Stand Up Paddle-boarding) club based in Hinckley, Leicestershire.
Friendly and welcoming club – Good training for 1, 2 and 3 star Canoe and Kayak
Every Thursday from April to September the members meet at the training water to either teach or be taught, or just have a mess about on the water. At least once a month during the season there is a trip organised which caters for the different levels of Canoeing & Kayaking.
Good selection of trips – Caters for families really well
It has a membership of approximately 150 people, ranging from 7 to over 60 years who all enjoy the sport, whether paddling or not. It caters for all levels of the sport from complete novice to grade 4/5 water.
Coaching is good in the club
It has members who donate their time and knowledge of the sport to teach novices and encourage new members to paddle in a safe and enjoyable way. Allowing people of all ages to have fun and build up their confidence in Kayaks and Canoes.
We always welcome new members and can support them by lending out kit and boats until they are sure they like the sport and want to continue to succeed in reaching a good level of competence on the water…
