Paddling sessions and where we meet
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. We are currently meeting at the QMC Pool on Wednesday evenings and will continue to do so until we move to the Basingstoke Canal in April. Look at our club sessions page to find out more.
19th - 21st January 2018
A gem of a river, with something for everyone. The “Loop” is a red paddle, with a number of Grade 3 rapids (all of which can be portaged) and plenty of play spots.
Junior Intro Course
(PaddlePower Start & Passport)
Starting 10th January 2018
This is will be a beginners kayaking course aimed at juniors (under 12). The course will comprise 6 1/2 hour sessions (with 15 min beforehand to get ready) in the warmth of the QMC swimming pool. There will also be a Saturday session on the Basingstoke Canal (Odiham) organised at a time to suit the participants. This session will be when the weather is warmer as young people kayaking in the winter get cold very quickly.
The BAD Phone!
The BADCC pool phone is operational again - a newer Nokia model is able to receive a signal despite the refurbishment of QMC's swimming pool which has seriously reduced the phone signal inside!
Want to give it a try or just get in touch?
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 BCU (British Canoe Union) qualified coaches.
