Ascot Kayak Club (AKC) is Australia’s largest kayak/canoe club and has a strong focus on developing all aspects of kayaking as a sport and recreational activity in Western Australia.
We are volunteer run and provide a safe and inclusive environment where you can learn good kayaking/canoeing skills, receive coaching from experienced and qualified members, access structured training programs, compete in club and paddlesport events and gain experience and knowledge of our beautiful waterways. We’re not all about competition! We have a large contingent of recreational and social members. All are welcome at AKC
