About Us

Welcome to DUCC! We have a huge variety of opportunities within one single club.

We are competitive and run fitness and training sessions both on the river and in the gym. We enter at BUCs in three disciplines: white water racing, slalom and canoe polo. We also play canoe polo tournaments with other local clubs throughout the year.

We are adventurous and run local white-water day trips as well as residential trips to the Lake District, Scotland and Alps. These are a great way to get to know other club members!

We are friendly and welcoming, with fun, chilled sessions on the river and lots of socials, both spontaneous and pre-organised.

In the past we have welcomed both competent paddlers and complete beginners. Don’t worry if you have never kayaked before, we have dedicated sessions both in the pool and on the river and build up your skills slowly.

In a single week we run a variety of: pool sessions (in the warm!), flat-water river sessions, white water sessions, fitness sessions, fun sessions and more, so there is something for everyone.

We look forward to seeing you at our boathouse soon!
