Royal Canoe Club
The home of flatwater racing
Royal Canoe Club is a friendly and sociable club with an unrivalled tradition in sprint and marathon racing. Founded in 1866, we are the oldest canoe club in the UK. We are based on the Thames at Teddington and have excellent facilities, equipment and coaching. New members are always very welcome.
Courses for beginners
A warm welcome awaits you at Royal. We have members at every level and we offer taster sessions and beginner courses to get you started.
Our membership is diverse - they like to race, go on recreational trips, try sea kayaking and keep up with fitness training. The one thing we have is common is that we like to have fun on and off the water.
