FOR THE NEW PADDLER
If you are an adult and new to paddling the best place to start is the Introductory Course. It is very popular and fills up quick, book early. Many recreational/social paddlers meet and network at this course. If you are an adult, once a member, we have a range of entry level kayaks you can paddle on the river nearby.
For new junior paddlers we have our fun, play and learn course called Ascot Paddle Passport. Adults and juniors don’t need to buy any gear to get started, the club supplies everything. Juniors cannot join the club without a Parent or Guardian club member.
