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) or on Monday 14th September (during Fresher’s Week) and book onto one of our FREE taster sessions?
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 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:
Hi! My name is Tom Hopkins and I’m this year’s club captain. I’m a fourth year Modern Languages student and have been a keen kayaker for some years now.
I highly recommend you come and check us out if you already paddle or if you’re new to the sport; like many of our new members, I was hooked straight away!
All abilities and interests are well catered for in EUCC and there’s a great social vibe within the club. Everyone is very relaxed and easy-going; we all paddle at the weekend, train and go out in the evenings together during the week. I’ve made many good friends and some great memories during my time in the club – in short, I couldn’t recommend it more!
See on you the river,
Tom Hopkins EUCC Club Captain 2015-16
