    As chairman of "Piggin' Paddlers" I suppose I'd better plug our club. We have a strong canoing section, and a friendly rivalry with the Kkers although most of us paddle both.

    Our website is a bit out of date but here's the link

    Default Canoe Clubs (Hampshire)

    I'm a member of Upper Hamble Canoe Club
    http://www.upperhamblecc.co.uk/
    As well as a good number of open canoeists, they also have very active Kayak and Sea Kayak sections with much overlap. Visitors welcome but be warned, it is a popular club and there is often a waiting list to become a member (6 months).

    There is also the Winchester canoe club which had a few opens when I was there a few years back.

    Liverpool of course! We have only been up and running since October.

    Seeing as the club is so new, its currently operating more like a group of 80 friends, it is only just getting started with club trips.

    The first predominantly canoe focussed trip is along the Mersey Trail this weekend.

    Hopefully many more trips to come including next years open boat expedition in Canada!

    Wyedean Canoe club has quite a few canoeing members and the club has six of its own canoes. Club nights are Thursdays at Symonds Yat during British Summer Time with pool sessions fortnightly in the winter. There are winter trips every other weekend and lots of informal trips in between and in the summer. There are usually a couple of more dedicated canoe trips/weekends arranged each year. We are a family oriented club and we welcome all disciplines.

    More details on the website:http://www.wyedeancanoeclub.co.uk/wcc/

    You are more than welcome to join the website without joining the club.

    Check out the club calendar for trips:

    http://www.wyedeancanoeclub.co.uk/wcc/vb/calendar.php

    Every year we run 1* and 2* courses with our own coaches. We also regularly organise training for members at group rates with external coaches. In the last six months we ran a WWSR and Level 1 coaching. In the next six months we will be running a Level 2 and an Open Canoe 3 star.

    Our fees our cheap and joining is easy. You are welcome to come along for a trip or pool session to try before you buy.

    Castle Canoe Club is based at the West Reservoir Centre, Stoke Newington, London.

    There are only a handful of us paddling open boats, but the centre has a fleet of Dagger Reflection 14s at our disposal.
    I won't try to pretend that the Castle is the most active of clubs, but the reservoir is a nice peaceful place to while away a couple of hours on a Sunday morning (and Tuesday evenings during summer hours)

    Just a quick note to remind all club members that they can add their club to Paddle Points if they wish to.

    Simply click on Add to Map once you've found your rough location, choose "Club" from the pop-up, then it will allow you to position your marker. Once you've done this, a box pops up to allow you to add full details and any links to your website you wish to use.

    Bridgnorth Canoe Club - we have an active open canoe section, including coaches. Nearly all our trips are mixed, so there are canoes and kayaks coming along for the ride, both on placid rivers and whitewater.

    I've mentioned The Wobbly Water Group in many bloggs.

    We are based in the northwest around Southport give or take as many miles as you are prepared to travel.

    Membership is open and free, via our facebook page.

    Most of our activity is out of the area but during the summer we use the local canals on weekday evenings.

    We meet on the first Tuesday of each month currently at the Bluebell Inn Kidsgrove, to discuss where we've been and where we want to go next. Meet location changes when the day length allows pre-meet paddles. A healthy assortment of canoeists, kayakers (touring & white water), sea-kayakers .... out to have fun. Should be setting up pool sessions soon.

    see website for more details/contact info etc ... http://www.potteriespaddlers.co.uk/
    I should have added the club contact email ... admin@potteriespaddlers.co.uk ... is me ... hopefully, I answer all enquires in a fairly sensible manner and not in a Potty fashion at all.

    Just in case someone ends up in the Rotterdam area looking for a friendly, family oriented club of kayakers, canoeists and hopefully soon a bunch of wacky canoe polo players: Natsec in Vlaardingen http://www.natsec.nl/home/news.php

    We even go out in a big C11 (yep, that is eleven!) each week, mostly on our local waters but also on tours about: http://www.natsec.nl/home/page.php?12

    Cheers, Michiel

    DCKC has an active canoeing session supported by UKCC level 3 OC Coach Graham Swanson and by MWE OC Coach Sandy Johnston. We meet on Tuesday nights at the Playdrome in Clydebank for our pool session and on Wednesday nights at the Pinkston Artificial White Water Course in Glasgow. Regular weekend and day trips with some through-the-week paddling on rivers, loch and the sea.

    The club's website can be found at www.dckc.co.uk
    New members are welcome.

    As a thought how about putting canoe clubs on the members map?
    Bridgenorth Canoe Club has already had a mention, but I would like to add that we have a healthy dose of canoes.
    Cheers
