Activities

There are lots of different ways you can get on the water with Trentham Canoe Club. Whether you enjoy gentle paddling on local canals and rivers, experiencing the thrill of racing or high energy of polo, there’s an activity for you!
Recreational Paddling
​We have a wide range of kayaks and canoes for general recreational paddling, typically single seater plastic kayaks and open boat canadian canoes. Kayaks are great for all-round fitness and individual skill whilst the open canoes can provide a nice alternative for families and friends wanting to share the same boat.
Marathon/Sprint Racing
​Trentham Canoe Club has a strong racing section with paddlers involved in marathon (endurance) and sprint (short distance) racing disciplines. Race boat sessions take place throughout the week and are available for all ages and any potential new racers are welcome to join in and give it a try.
Canoe Polo
If you fancy taking your kayaking skills to a higher level with energy and competition, canoe polo is definitely for you. Our teams currently compete in both regional and national leagues as well as summer tournaments with several successful years; winning the National League Division 4 Central, then winning division 3.
Paddle-Ability
Paddle-Ability sessions enable disabled people to take part in activity with other disabled people as part of a club or groups specifically for disabled people or, more frequently, alongside their non-disabled friends and family. Trentham Canoe Club offers regular Paddle-Ability sessions. 
Socials
​We often spend time together on and off the water with regular trips on local canals and rivers, social events in and around Trentham and the occasional visit to the local for a pint!
