FAQ - freqently asked questions


How do I find out more?

The best thing is just to come along to one of our weekly meetings and say hello, that way you'll get to meet some folks and see what we're all about. No need to book, just come along.

Do I need any kit?

No, the club owns enough kit to lend out and get you started, though on busy nights we can be a bit short so please be patient. See below for more details about the pool and pond sessions.

Does it matter if I've never paddled before?

Absolutely not, everyone has to start sometime.
