Tonbridge Canoe Club

beginner courses 

Attendance on a beginner course is mandatory for all new members with limited or no previous paddling experience. Members with reasonable paddling experience may not need a beginner course but will be required to undertake a short assessment prior to joining.

The beginner course is provided as a membership benefit and there is no additional charge. Courses are available to new members only, the club does not provide instruction for non-members.

New member beginner courses usually run from April to September and extend over four sessions. An indoor swimming pool session is also included when the pool is available. You will need to be available for all sessions.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the current coronavirus restrictions courses may be subject to change or cancellation at short notice.
