Come paddle with us!

Thinking about joining Meridian Canoe Club? If so, then you’re welcome to come along to one of the Club’s main sessions, either Saturday Mornings at Danson Park, or every other Wednesday Evening at Crook Log Swimming Pool. (See the event calendar for dates and session leaders.)

General Pool Sessions at Crook Log pool cost £12 each and do not need to be booked in advance; you can simply turn up and and someone will be around to help get you set up with a boat (you do not need to pay at reception!) There are always coaches on the water to assist and advise.

Saturday mornings are by arrangement only, in order to ensure coaches are available to kit you out and introduce you to paddling on open water.  Please use our contact email to arrange this.

Becoming a Member

If you would like to become a member of Meridian Canoe Club then please introduce yourself by filling out our contact form or emailing then head over to our online membership system

Please note: This system manages personal details and financial information; it will open in a new tab direct with the service provider using a secure HTTPS link.

We prefer members to join and renew membership and manage their contact details via our online system, but for those who cannot access the system, a hardcopy of the membership form can be found here and paddle-sport consent form for juniors can be found here.

If using the hardcopy, please complete the form and pass it to our Membership Secretary at the Wednesday pool session. Please remember to include the £10 joining fee if you are a new member, and for renewing members, if you are not a British Canoeing member, you will need to add £3 for the British Canoeing capitation (3rd party insurance and river access licence levy) to the annual subscription on renewal.

The club welcomes new members at all times and no prior experience is necessary. We have a number of qualified coaches and a strong and friendly community of existing members who are more than happy to help. Members travel from all over London, Essex, Kent and Surrey to paddle with us – our catchment is large and we welcome regardless of distance.  Meridian Canoe Club has plenty to offer experienced paddlers too. We are always looking for new members to join our slalom, polo and racing teams, or come along on our exciting river and surfing trips.

Hope to hear from you soon!
