Welcome to Exeter Uni Canoe Club!
Here you’ll find loads of information about what we do as a club; but if you can’t see what you’re looking for, then why not come meet us during term time at one of our pool sessions (Mon, Wed 20:00- 22:00 at St. Luke’s pool).
As a group of predominantly white-water kayakers, whether you’re a complete beginner (and have never heard of the sport before) or a bit of a pro that already has experience in canoeing or kayaking, we warmly invite you to come and join us for a paddle.
As a club, we also partake in polo, freestyle kayaking, flat-water racing and surf kayaking; mainly for fun but also competitively- so there are plenty of different ways to get involved! We are looking at more ways of getting involved in competitive sport through BUCS, such as polo, slalom and wild-water racing; so join and express your interest if this is something you could see yourself doing! Who knows where it might take you…
We offer all the coaching and instruction that you’ll need to take part safely on the river (or in the surf) – for the large part free of charge! However, we also provide cheap, professionally-run external courses and qualifications tailor-made to our members.
With the region containing some of the best white-water (on Dartmoor and Exmoor in particular) and surf (the South-West generally) in the country, you’d be crazy not to come and give it a go!
From the Captain:
My name is Sam Johnson and I am this year’s EUCC Club captain. I am in my 4th year at the university, studying for a master’s degree in mathematics and have been a club member for the past 3 years. Being part of the club has been by far the best part of my university life and I strongly encourage everyone to make the same decision I did and give kayaking a go. I have made many amazing friends, had some incredible experiences and have a loved every minute of my time in the club. Whether joining the club as a complete beginner as I did, or as an experienced paddler, Exeter University Canoe Club caters for all abilities and interests; offering a really chilled out vibe and great social opportunities. The club is extremely welcoming; running pool sessions, socials and trips every week which encompass an incredibly relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Looking forward to seeing you soon!
