Thank you for visiting Croydon Active Paddlers Canoe Club’s website.

Croydon Active Paddlers are an established club based in and around Croydon in South London. We are currently a small friendly bunch of paddlers who organize regular kayaking trips all over the country and to local rivers.

Pool Sessions
We run a regular Friday night pool sessions during the winter months in Warlingham. As it’s now summer come along to one of our flat water trips to try out paddling for the first time. Check the events page and contact the organiser.

We welcome beginners and our qualified coaches can help you with your first steps onto the water. Once you’ve got the hang of the basics we will run suitable day trips to build up your skills and confidence on different types of water. Check out the events page for upcoming flatwater trips contact the organiser and book a place to start learning the basics. BCU star tests are also available and encouraged to build up your paddling skills.

White Water Paddlers
Given the small amount of rain last season we still managed to paddle in Devon, North and South Wales, the Lake District and Scotland.

If you’re an experienced paddler contact us in readiness for next season’s whitewater or join us on one of our informal weir bashing sessions or HPP weekend. See the events page for details.

Other Activities
We’ve organised a number of weekends and days climbing, gorge walking, go karting, banger racing, coasteering. Most of these take place over the summer months so check the events page for more details.

Most of activities end up with a social pint at a local tavern. We are friendly crowd and welcome, couples, singles and families so come along and get involved. To see our scheduled events visit

I hope to see you soon

Best wishes
