Our summer evening sessions ended mid September, but we have been unable to find a pool with capacity for winter sessions because of COVID-19 restrictions. We intend running Sunday river sessions when coaches are available and water levels are appropriate. Keep an eye on our Facebook group page for updates.

Garstang Canoe & Kayak Club, located between Preston and Lancaster, was founded at the town’s Tithe Barn pub in 1973; originally part of the Scout group. The club is small and friendly and caters mainly for river running and playboating kayak paddlers, but welcomes open boats and sea kayaks too. The club is fortunate to have access to the river Wyre in Garstang, with easy access a stretch of water perfect for training and a weir for practicing moving water paddle skills.
The club will provide you with a boat, paddle, spray deck, helmet, buoyancy aid and a flipping good time. The club has British Canoeing accredited instructors so you can rest assured that you're in good hands.
There is always someone to help and advise either the complete novice, or paddlers who just want to join a club with a friendly family atmosphere. Membership is £30/year (Discounts available for junior and joint membership), but you can come and try before you commit. Weekday sessions are £10 for non members, £6 for members.
