Weekly Pool Sessions:

The club has two weekly pool sessions where you will learn the essential skills of the sport: from paddling in a straight line to the perfect roll. These sessions take place at the David Ross Sports Village swimming pool every:

Wednesday 9:30pm - 10:30pm

Fridays 8:30pm - 9:30pm 

Regular Trips and Competitions:

Throughout the year we run a number of trips to some of the best whitewater in the UK. These trips are aimed at paddlers of all abilities. Each year we also participate in several competitions and are proud to be the University of Nottingham’s most successful BUCS club, by number of titles held.


Important dates for upcoming events and socials can be found in our calendar.
