Clubhouse, facilities & services

Clubhouse

The club has two clubhouses, the newly-built, state-of-the-art facility on Trowlock Island and the mainland facility at the end of Trowlock Way. The island clubhouse incorporates the Wells Room in which paddling and rowing machines are used, and the exceptionally well kitted-out Paul Gilbert gym. Both clubhouses have male and female changing facilities while the mainland clubhouse also contains the kitchen, bar, office and on-site physiotherapy facilities.

Gym

The revamped Paul Gilbert gym is available for the use of members and contains a comprehensive variety of free weights, fixed-weight machines and specialist, paddling-specific equipment. The gym is used by the various sections of the club for winter land-based training as well as for junior and cadet development programmes.

Food is available in the mainland clubhouse on Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings after training. Wednesdays are the main canoe club night.
