Thank you for visiting Croydon Active Paddlers Canoe Club's website.
We are an established club based in and around Croydon in South London. We are currently a small friendly bunch of paddlers who organise regular kayaking trips all over the country and to local rivers, on a year round basis.
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 welcome you on suitable day trips to build up your skills and confidence on different types of water.Check out the events page for details of our upcoming flatwater trips.
We also organize training and assessment sessions towards the various BCU awards.
White Water Paddlers
Despite the effects of Global Warning, with less and less rain each year, we still manage to organise a number of weekends away each Winter, paddling challenging Whitewater Rivers in the likes of Devon, North and South Wales. Some of our members manage to travel further afield in their hunt for big volume rivers including trips to France, Italy, Norway and Scotland.
We have members that are happy paddling up to Grade 5 and also enjoy the delights of Weir Bashing at the likes of Hurley and Chertsey Weirs. If you're an experienced paddler looking for some buddies to paddle with, we could be just the people!
Over the years we've organised a number of weekends and days Kayak surfing, climbing, gorge walking, go karting, banger racing, coasteering and caving. Most of these take place over the summer months so check out the events page.
Most of activities end up with a sociable pint at a local Inn. We are friendly crowd and welcome, couples, singles and families, please do come along and get involved.
I hope to see you soon
Chairman to Croydon Active Paddlers
