Wednesday Barrage Session

This is the weekly session for paddling on harder whitewater and practising skills for rivers or freestyle. It takes place at the Tees Barrage in Stockton, which has a variety of features as well as a cafe and changing rooms with hot showers.

Meet at the boat house at 4pm to get kit and boats. You'll need to bring suitable clothes and a towel.

If you haven't attended a Barrage session previously, please speak to Molly before signing up.

Thursday Canoe polo session

We meet at 19:40 at the maiden castle boathouse, load boats and kit onto cars and drive to Darlington. The session runs from 21:00-22:00. We then drive home and pack away the kit.


Canoe polo is a fun team ball sport in kayaks. Come along if you fancy having a go! no need to have previous canoe polo experience. 

Please wear a short sleeved t-shirt or lycra rash-vest .

Refreshers Weekend Away

On the first weekend in February, we will be heading over to the Lakes for a couple of days. We'll be paddling rivers both days and we might even get to do something else too. Heading over on the Friday night, we'll base ourselves in a hall (so we don't need to camp in the cold!) and have some fun. This is a great weekend if you want to get back into paddling after the Christmas break.

Any questions, don't hesitate to contact Molly or other exec members.

NSR 2018

What do you get if you bring together a massive group of students from all over the country, get them drunk and put them down one of the best whitewater courses in the country? NSR!!!

NSR is the National Student Rodeo - the largest freestyle competition and student paddling event in the UK. There are competitions for all levels of paddlers in all sorts of boats. And you don't even have to paddle if you don't want to. It's a great event to come along and watch, and laugh at the inevitable carnage. 

Then there's the party. Some people say it's the best paddling party in existence. And even better, it's fancy dress! This year the theme is 'countries'. So don your best flags and national dress, and let's go have fun!

You can compete in as many classes as you want: K1, C1, squirt boat, duo, C2 (the freestyle C2 team from Durham completely smashed the competition last year, coming a clear first in the class).

Dates and prices have not been finalised yet. It is likely to be the first weekend in March, and last year the basic ticket was £56, which is a bargain price for such a great weekend.

ALPS 2018!

Have you ever fancied paddling fluffy white water in the hot sun with beautiful mountains around? Well, you'll have your chance this summer!

The plan is to spend two weeks out in the French Alps at the end of summer term. We'll be based in Argentiere, a real hotspot for paddlers. There's plenty to do, even if you don't want to paddle every day. We'll be doing a range of rivers, from easy ones suitable for everyone, to gnarly gorges that will provide endless amusement for anyone watching from the bank! 

Anyone can come, but we'd like you to get out on some river trips next term if you're interested. Deposits will be taken towards Easter, so you've got plenty of time to decide.

Sun, fun and french wine - what more could you want?
