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 and is either at Colt Hill (summer) or QMC (winter). We will be re-starting our Wednesday QMC Pool sessions on 18th September.
Thoughout the year, when there are no other Club activities organised, we also paddle at Colt Hill on Saturday mornings.
Look at our club sessions page to find out more.
