About Us

Beginners to Experts

 Canoe and kayaking at Loughborough suits both adrenaline junkies, performance athletes and beginners alike. Canoeing is one of Britain’s most upcoming sports, and with various disciplines available we can offer something for everyone. 

An Athletic Union Club

 We cater for Great Britain team members to those who have never kayaked before, so you don't need any experience to come along. We have regular pool sessions to learn the basics or develop your skills and we compete in both University and National competitions. 

BUCS

 We compete three times per year in the BUCS Wild Water Racing, BUCS slalom and BUCS polo. Everyone in the club can compete, and we regularly have freshers placed on the BUCS team.

Pub Quiz

We're hosting a pub quiz night guys.

This is a new one for the club but promises to be a good night of banter and drinks with a bespoke quiz done by me. We're doing this one for charity as we are supporting movember so entry is £2.

The event is open to non club members as well so feel free to form a team with some of your mates and take on our quiz. (max team size is 5)

Don't worry guys you can bring your own drinks to the occasion as the bar will most likely be closed.
