Hey Paddlers,

We've got some changes acomin'...

Kit Amnesty - We are being required to do a full kit inventory, and for this, we need the kit back. Please bring any club kit you have hanging around yours back by 10am tomorrow. Please do not take any kit home after tonight’s session. All kit MUST be returned. 

Kit Borrowing - After this Sunday (01/07/18) the new Kit Borrowing policy comes into force. If you are borrowing kit, you MUST fill in polo’s kit borrowing form on the website. Since this use is outside of club usage, maintenance charges will apply: £1 for a complete set of kit excluding a boat per training session it is used at, £3 for each training session a boat is used at, and £5 for each tournament the kit is used at (tournament cost covers both boat and kit). There is also a charge for each Warwick session that the kit/boat misses equal to that of a training session. 

Paddles - Have you noticed that your favourite paddles feel a little different? Well, that’s sort of my fault. We have renumbered the paddles! Also, listed on the left blade is the length and feather. I know this is going to be a bit annoying, but it should hopefully make things easier for you all going ahead â”œâ–‘┼©ÔäóÔÇÜ

See you tonight!

Polo Love

Hi paddlers,

The end of the year is nigh, which means the time has come for the annual garage clean up and kit fixing day!
This will involve tidying and cleaning the garage, taking an inventory of all the kit stored there and of course fixing stuff.
We'll be starting at 10am and will be continuing all day (barring lunch break), so the more people who turn up the better! Feel free to bring cake and biscuits along with you ;)
Hoping to see lots of you there,

Sup paddlers,

So as you all know surf trip is coming up (sign up if you haven’t already!!) and to accompany the trip there is of course a coveted t-shirt to commemorate not only the weekend, but the whole year of kayaking. You don't even have to go to surf to get a t-shirt! Each T-shirt will be adorned with your very own personalised nickname, hand crafted by our outgoing members.

If you would like to get a T-shirt please select your size on the doodle (same supplier as last year):

T-shirts will cost around £11 (TBC)  which we will send you a payment link for once the order has been processed.

Canoe love,

Jonathan and the canoe exec

Sup paddlers!

As the end of term is almost upon us I thought I would update you on the final socials of the year. So once those pesky exams (boo!) are out of the way join us as we celebrate another year in typical Canoe style;

WEEK 8 – SATURDAY – SKOOLDAYZ – We will be hitting up the Copper Rooms. We will need a Fresher’s kitchen to host prinks, starting hopefully straight after polo at 21:30. Contact me if you want to host!

WEEK 9 – WEDNESDAY – POP! – Instead of circling in the Copper Rooms we will be having a BBQ (weather dependant) and drinks beforehand, then its back to the Copper Rooms for the final time this year. Prepare yourself as Disco Dave blasts out the Warwick Anthem ‘Mr Brightside’. The theme is Summer!! 
You only need an 'event-only' ticket!!

WEEK 9 - SURF – Need I say more. Signup if you haven’t already.

WEEK 10 – DATE TBC – EPIC PARTY – Warwick Canoe’s version of the Sports Ball. Join us for the final social of the year at Leamington Rugby Club where alcohol is aplenty. More information will be coming in the following weeks.

Canoe love

Rumours have been circulating that exams are ending in a few weeks time. This can only mean one thing: summer kayaking!!



On the 19th June (Tues Week 9) the club will be heading to Nene whitewater centre for a sunny* afternoon play in some moving water. This will be a great opportunity to get back into paddling, and your best chance to try out the duo, or the brand new Wavehoppers on some moving water, as well as to try out any new playboating you’ve been practicing in the pool.
We will be meeting at 12pm and returning around 6.
This trip will cost £12, and includes all kit and transport.


Signups for Nene will go live Monday 4th June. If you would like to come but will be in an exam, let a member of the exec know in advance.


On the 22nd June (Fri Week 9) we will depart for what is debatably the best trip of the year: our annual surf tour at Newgale campsite in Pembrokeshire. A weekend of drinking (both alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages), bbqs, bonfires, party-tenting and maybe even a splash in the sea. This trip is open to absolutely anyone, so let us know if you’re bringing a plus-one with you. Camping should cost £6 per night, and transport will be approximately £25.


Signups for surf are already open on Everyone who signs up will be able to come!!

Be sure to signup for both a ‘leaving’ (Fri AM/PM) and a ‘returning’ (Sun PM/Mon PM) so that you will have transport both ways. Please sign up before Wednesday 13th June so we can sort transport, and let us know if you would like to bring a car.


Quick reminder that Epic Party will be on the 28th June (Thurs Week 10) at Leamington Rugby club - more on this soon.


Canoe Love,

Alice and the Canoe Exec
