Meet at 7 on the grass between Bluebell 1 and 2, and bring food to BBQ, and drinks :)

Just to confirm, there's no theme, so wear what you like to the last Pop! of the year.

Happy Solstice

I've now sent 3 emails about payment for surf t shirts, but they keep going to spam.
Please check your spam folders.

Sorry about this

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but our session this Saturday has been stolen by the horrible swimming club who have decided to do a charity event this week!

As such we have a session on Friday (tomorrow) from half 8 til 10! Sorry about all the confusion.

Please comment on this facebook post with the size if you want one – we will set up a payment link once we have all the orders.

Kit borrowing for personal paddling trips

Posted 6y 10mth ago by Some Old Git
Posted by: Hadyn
We have had an issue recently with kit being stored on the balcony and blocking the fire escape doors. As a reminder guys kit should be returned to the garage at the earliest possible convenience.
If kit has to be stored on the balcony, for a short period of time, then please leave it behind the rope we use to section off the kayaks and never in front of the fire escape doors (Warwick Sport take this very seriously).
As the summer approaches more people borrow club kit for personal paddling trips. We don't charge a fee for borrowing kit on personal trips as we want to encourage everyone to kayak as much as possible, but in doing so you must fill in the kit borrowing form, in addition to asking a member of Canoe's Exec. This is so we have a written record of who took what kit were as kit has a habit of disappearing over the summer.
Please remember that while we don't charge for lost or broken kit on club trips we will do so for personal paddling trips our charges along with the full kit borrowing policy can be read on our website.

Nene & Surf Signups

Posted by: Hadyn

Signups for both Nene and Surf Trip will go live at 5pm tonight on the website.



Will cost £12 for transport, fuel and course hire.

Meet at the Sport Centre at 9am on Tuesday 20th June to pack the van. The course is booked for 2 hours from 11am – 1pm. You will just need a day’s paddling kit and a packed lunch. We will return to campus around 3pm.


Surf Trip

Friday 23rd June to Sunday 25th/Monday 26th June. 

We will be offering multiple transport options leaving on both Friday morning and Friday evening and returning on the Sunday and the Monday. Please sign up for both an outbound and a return journey or we may leave you in Newgale.

The cost of camping has unfortunetly gone up to £6 pppn this year. The cost of transport will be dependent on what transport is needed and the distribution between morning and evening so we will confirm prices to you closer to the time.

We will be offering optional 2017 Surf Trip T-shirts again this year designed by our soon to be Old Gits. They will cost around £10.20 but again we will confirm prices once we know numbers.


This will also give us the first opportunity to test the website under heavy load since it was migrated to its new home so be ready at 5pm tonight.

If you have any problems speak to myself or another member of the Canoe Exec.

Key Dates for Term 3

Posted 6y 11mth ago by Some Old Git
Posted by: Hadyn

I hope everyone’s exam prep and dissertations are going well, term 3 can be a stressful time so here is a reminder that all of our regular pool sessions are still running throughout term 3.


These are Monday 8:30-10:00pm, Wednesday 8:30-10:00pm and Thursday 3:30-4:30pm for Canoe with Tuesday 8:30-10:00pm and Saturday 6:30-8:30pm for Canoe Polo.


We have some exciting trips and socials coming up, to keep you motivated through your exams, for term 3 can be dark and full of terror.


Nene Trip - Tuesday 20th June (week 9)


The club will be going to the Nene Whitewater course for a day of kayaking. This is a good chance to practice catching eddies or moving water freestyle. Signups and more information including price will be released next week.  



Surf Trip - Friday 23rd June to Monday 26th June (Weekend week 9)


When all exams are done what’s better than sitting on a beach/campsite in the Welsh sun (it does exist) drinking alcohol, eating BBQ food and very occasionally contemplating the possibility of trying some sea/surf kayaking? We will be taking an extended weekend break to Newgale in Pembrokeshire for our annual surf trip. As usual surf trip t-shirts will be available designed by our graduating members.  



Skool Dayz – Saturday 17th June (week 8)


Instead of our usual handover social the whole club will be going to week 8 Skool Dayz. Get your ticket now here:



Pop! – Wednesday 21st June (week 9) NON-CIRCLING


Grab your week 9 Event Only Pop! ticket as we will be circling outside at the Bluebell BBQ’s. Bring alcohol, meat and fire and enjoy our open-air circle before heading into the copper rooms for Pop! Get your event only tickets here:



Epic Party – Thursday 29th June (week 10)


The greatest social event since Real Ale. Leamington rugby club, food, unlimited alcohol, bouncy castle - one single price. Need I say more.



Save the dates in your diary and more information about each event will be released closer to the time.


Good luck with exams,


The 2017/18 Canoe Exec
