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!


CORONAVIRUS UPDATE – Getting back to normal

We are pleased to announce that Danson lake is OPEN to members through pre-booked sessions, seven days a week within daylight hours. 

Please note: Lake use must adhere to current Government and British Canoeing guidelines (available here) as well protocols superimposed by Bexley Council. Notable points from the Council include that members must still book sessions before attending, should not paddle on the lake alone, and restrictions on current use of the changing rooms. Members can now book sessions for multiple people through single bookings, with new options at weekends for sessions at varying levels, independent or coach-led, and with or without club kit.  Bookings can be made in advance up until the start of the session by emailing chairperson@meridiancanoeclub.com or via the club’s web-collect system. Details of new session options and prices can be found here.

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