Welcome to Meridian Canoe Club!

We are a British Canoeing Top Club run by volunteers with a passion for paddlesport!

Meridian is one of the largest canoe clubs in both London and the UK. We compete regularly in Olympic disciplines of Canoe Slalom and Flat Water Racing and are also very active in Canoe Polo, Surfing, Open Boating, White Water and other recreational Flat Water river trips. We have a diverse and friendly community engaged across these disciplines and welcome new members of all ages and experience! Whether you′re hungry for adventure on our exciting river trips, raring for the action-packed challenge of canoe polo and opportunity to fulfil your competitive streak, or in the mood for some weekend fun and tranquillity exploring the beautiful recesses of Danson Lake, we′d love to hear from you!

This site has all the information you should need about our club, what we do, where we meet and how to join. If you can′t find what you′re looking for then please check out our forum, fill in our contact form or drop an e-mail to enquiries@meridiancanoeclub.com and we will get back to you as soon as we can.  Experienced or beginner, Meridian is a fantastic club to get outdoors and paddle with!


Like many of us, the club is facing many struggles at the moment in these difficult and unprecedented times. We have been working constantly and closely with Danson Adventures and Bexley Council, following the Government’s rules and guidance, trying to get people paddling again as soon and as safely as possible whilst ensuring risk to health is kept low and activities stay responsive to changing conditions. As of 5/10/2020 all lake activities have been suspended until further notice. As we brave this second lockdown we hope that everyone stays safe, is able to get outdoors for some exercise and fresh air, and that we will back to normal and seeing you all again soon!

Please see our Club Calendar for all course and event details.
