Which membership level is right for me

The club has a number of different membership levels and you should select the one appropriate for you. If you do not have a valid membership when you arrive for your session then you will be required to fill out a new starters membership form when you arrive, in order to ensure we have the necessary details about you. All memberships (including free ones) expire after 1 year, when you renew your membership you should should take time to ensure all your detail are still up to date.

Once you have identified the right membership level for yourself you can select it from the table above. If you require help with applying for a membership please see the applying for a membership level guide.

Note: Depending on the venue (there is typically no charge for canal sessions) and type of membership you will have to pay a fee for each session in addition to the membership cost.

  • Non Member / New Starter (Free) – You should select this level if you are a new starter to the club or do not yet wish to purchase a full membership. This membership level allows you to paddle at club sessions, while paying the full session price (typically £7).
