Off the Water

During the winter, when it is not possible to train on the water in the evenings, the club runs circuit training classes at Cropredy Village Hall. These replace the Tuesday and Thursday club sessions at 7-8pm for adults and on Thursdays only at 6.15 for under 12s.

We also run a series of lectures during the year, covering various aspects of competitive paddling and being an athlete.
