The club has been helped and supported by Chiswick Pier Trust, Sport
England, the BCU, Active Ealing, Hounslow CIP and the London Marathon
Trust. We work with Kayakojacko - a local company committed to coaching
excellence in many types of canoeing and this has helped us to expand
New members of any age (8 +) or ability are always welcome. Assistance
is provided to take people as far as they want to go in different parts
of the sport. We are committed to developing all aspects of canoeing and
helping people to make more use of the Thames. Look under Cool Stuff to
find photos of recent club activities and more.
River sessions run from Chiswick Pier on Sunday mornings. These usually involve a trip towards either to Fulham or Kew - depending on the tide. All abilities are welcome. More details including what to bring, what time we meet and other useful info can be found under the ‘Sessions’ link at the top of this page.
You could also join us on a Thursday Evening pool session 21:00 - 22:15 every week at Gurnell Leisure Centre, where you can meet some of our coaches and members and try a boat. We teach rescues, rolling and basic skills at the pool.
You may also like to join a beginners or an improvers course. See
club programme for dates of the next courses.

Above left is the link for Active Ealing. It is the department in Ealing Council which encourages and provides opportunities for sport and physical activities. They run one of London's best sport development programmes - 9 sports centres and an athletics track. They help clubs like ours to get started and develop. You can find out more about Active Ealing from their website.
The link above right is for Awards For All. They provided us with some grant money to help our club grow to what it is now. The London Trust (centre) gave us a £7,000 grant to buy boats and to fit a pontoon to the pier, which enables us to launch safely in any tidal conditions. Hounslow council also helped our club to get started in 1998 by giving us some kayaks.
