Location/Venue: The Nene is great white water course for beginners who have just done a few taster sessions or weir sessions. It was one of the UK’s first pumped artificial white water course, and is designed for ease of access to see the whole course. You require to book and pay for your sessions directly with the Nene. However as no bank side safety cover provided and the club is required to provide its own, we do ask members to still pay club fees on these sessions. These fees however are waivered if the particpant(s) is already confident paddling grade 3, passed your legacy assessment or completed a white water safety and rescue course.


All of our white water sessions use a variety of venues rotating between Local Weirs, Nene White Water Course and Lee Valley White Water Course. These have been chosen to help offer venue locations that will provide something for everyone at differing levels, so both entry level and more advanced paddlers can all be welcome to join in.

The sessions are aimed to support participants to

  • learn the basics of how to manoeuvre a craft in moving water
  • progressively building up necessary skills for more advanced or longer trips
  • practise existing white water river skills
  • practise freestyle skills
