Welcome to Exeter University Canoe Club FRESHERS

WELCOME FRESHERS!

Firstly a massive well done for getting into probably the best university in the world!

We are Exeter University Canoe club otherwise known as EUCC. s 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 run weekly white water trips to Dartmoor and Exmoor and two pool sessions a week at the St Lukes campus (don’t worry we have a shuttle bus) as well as a weekly social. EUCC has many kayaking weekend trips over the academic year twice to Wales, one to a bunkhouse in Dartmoor, one to Polzeath beach and also a massive trip to the Alps at the end of summer exams.

Here is our Freshers’ Week plan:

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! (But don’t take my word for it! Check out our testimonials here to see what our members past and present think…)

See on you the river,

Tom Hopkins EUCC Club Captain 2015-16
