Ringwood Canoe Club

Contact Information:

Ringwood Canoe Club was formed in 1987 with the primary aim of introducing people to the fun of canoeing. The club is principally a 'recreational' one and has grown steadily over the years and has now settled at approximately 100 members, most of whom live within a 20 mile radius of Ringwood.
 
In line with the informal nature of the club there are no fixed premises.
 
Affiliated to the BCU (British Canoe Union), the club caters for people of all canoeing abilities - from novice to experienced - and organises activities across a very wide spectrum, right through the year.
 
While the club does not have a specific juniors’ section, many children have been introduced to canoeing through our family memberships.
 
The club organises a wide variety of day or weekend trips throughout the year. These range from placid river and open sea trips, through to surfing and white water weekends. The only common theme is the absence of competition: we believe in competing against the elements and not each other.
 
The club goes to considerable lengths to ensure that non-canoeists are not left out. Many events accommodate the entire family, including summer picnics, barbecues, beer and skittles evenings and weekend trips away
