Birmingham Canoe Club was established over 60 years ago. The club is very active and is supported by a dedicated membership who organise regular trips to various venues in the UK and Europe. We have many of coaches on hand to give instruction and guidance where necessary to help paddlers progress their skills.

The club welcomes all ability levels and age levels from absolute beginners to seasoned paddlers. The club currently has members interested in white water and flat water trips across the country The club also runs weekly training sessions to socialise and brush up on skills. This is a good venue to meet club members and most importantly to arrange weekend paddling trips, non-members are always welcome.
