The dates for our beginner courses are on the Getting Started page.  If you’ve ever wanted to try kayaking – now’s your chance.

We run separate courses for juniors and adults, but if you want to learn together as a family, just let us know – we are very happy to arrange that.  You just need to wear some suitable clothes – nothing special, and have a willingness to have a go – we can provide everything else.

We have produced international paddlers from complete beginners, and Olympians have chosen to join us.  Although Banbury is predominantly a flatwater racing club, racing is not compulsory.  However virtually everyone does end up getting involved, as there genuinely is something for everyone – whatever your age or ability.  And it’s great fun.

If the course dates don’t fit, please get in touch – we may be able to arrange an alternative for you.  Also, if you’d like to come and visit us before you sign up, do get in touch.  We’d love to show you around, and the kettle is always on!
