About us

Based on the edge of the picturesque Wey Navigation, Addlestone Canoe Club has been established for over 30 years.

We are a multi discipline club that welcomes all those interested in paddle sports from White Water to Sprint and Marathon Racing to Canoe Touring and Stand- Up Paddle Boarding (SUP).

ACC is probably the most diversified Club in the region, and we run programmes and instruction to suit beginners and advanced paddlers of all ages and abilities. Due to our location on the Wey Navigation, we have developed a special ethos of providing a wide variety of Canoeing experiences and opportunities for young people. Some of our young paddlers have gone on to represent Great Britain at International events while some adult members have participated in the renowned Devizes to Westminster Canoe Race.

All coaches are British Canoeing qualified supported by club approved paddlers who have worked through the internal accreditation scheme. These are all DBS checked and all work on a voluntary basis, devoting their time and energy to bring canoeing to as many people as possible, supporting the beginner and the more experienced paddler alike to improve their skills.

The Club is well equipped with all types of canoes, kayaks and paddling kit which can be used for a small charge by club members. The clubhouse has recently undergone a huge transformation and we now have our lovely new facilities that opened in 2021. They include new fit for purpose club room, changing facilities with hot showers, a small kitchen and fitness room.

Addlestone Canoe Club is a great place to paddle in a friendly environment so come and visit, we look forward to welcoming you!
