Paddling sessions and where we meet
The club has two "homes". These are our Club House at Colt Hill which is on the Basingstoke Canal near Odiham and the QMC Sports Centre Swimming Pool, Basingstoke.
Our main Club night is Wednesday evening and is either at Colt Hill (summer) or QMC (winter). Although our sessions are still a little limited by COVID-19 restrictions, we are now back to running both our Wednesday Club Nights and our Saturday Morning Paddles. We hope to re-start our Friday Kids Paddles later this year.
