Welshpool Canoe Club has been running for over twenty years.The club is run by volunteer coaches and helpers, who give up their spare time for the love of canoeing and kayaking. We train in the pool over the autumn and winter months, then paddlers can enjoy a spring and summer programme full of various events. Monthly river trips run throughout the year, depending on weather conditions and river water levels. When river levels are low, then we often head up to Bala to paddle the Afon Tryweryn. We also paddle on our local canals and lakes often in a mixed fleet including kayaks, canoes, sit-on-tops and paddleboards.
We are a family friendly club, even if you don't want to get wet, join us on one of our social events.
Whatever your goals, you can work towards British Canoeing Discover and Explore Awards or just enjoy learning how to paddle.
If your are aged 9 and above you can work towards your British Canoeing Start, Discover and Explore Awards.
