Events & Courses
We run beginner courses every month during the summer as well as intermediate (2 and 3 star) at various points. See the courses page for further details.
Away trips range from visiting our local pool for rolling practice to weeks abroad. Normally there will be one or two whitewater, sea or touring trips a month depending on the season. See the calendar page for further details.
Keep Up To Date
All of our planned and impromptu activites are arranged on Facebook and Yahoo Groups. Check them out for the latest happenings! Also check out the club calendar for scheduled events.
Want to come and have a chat? Our clubhouse is located directly under the Marlow side of Marlow Bridge (brown wood walls). There will be someone there at about 09:45 every Sunday. See the contact page for a map.

This is Who We Are
Marlow Canoe Club is a moderately large club situated on the banks of the Thames just under Marlow bridge in Buckinhamshire.
We are involved in all forms of paddle sport from extreme whitewater and freestyle to gentle cruising up the Thames with a flask of tea and a tin of cake chatting about our latest adventures.
Paddlers of all abilities are welcome. Don't know your canoe from your kayak? We can teach you all you need to know on our BCU 1* courses. Just got back from running 40 and 50ft waterfalls in Norway? Excellent; come and share your adventures with our whitewater crew. Prefer your paddling to involve some salt and big swells? Talk to our sea paddlers about their regular trips to the coast.
We have had quite a bit of success as a club with the like of world champion freestyler kayakers past and present, but those who simply want to soak up the atmosphere (pun intended) of being on the river are just as important to us.
So come on down, say hello and get involved!
