Who we are, what we do and where we meet
BADCC is known locally as a social canoe club where all are welcome to learn, develop and experience open canoe and kayaking to whatever level you want. We take part in a wide range of paddling sports and have a great group of British Canoeing qualified coaches.
The club has two "homes". These are our Club House at Colt Hill which is on the Basingstoke Canal near Odiham and the QMC Sports Centre Swimming Pool, Basingstoke. Our main Club night is Wednesday evening and is either at Colt Hill (summer) or QMC (winter).
Look at our club sessions page to find out more.
