Who we are, what we do and where we meet
BADCC is known locally as a social canoe club where all are welcome to learn, develop and experience open canoe and kayaking to whatever level you want. We take part in a wide range of paddling sports and have a great group of British Canoeing qualified coaches.
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).

Taster Days 2022
Once a month over the summer during 2022
We shall be running kayak taster days on the Basingstoke Canal at Odiham. These days are an opportunity to spend about an hour in a kayak to see whether you enjoy it and would like to come back for more.
Friday Evening Children's Paddles
Friday Evenings from May to September
During the spring and summer the Club runs a fun session for younger Club Members on the Basingstoke Canal each Friday evening from 6.00 to 7.30pm.
Club Nights on the Basingstoke Canal - Spring & Summer 2022
We are paddling on the Basingstoke Canal, Colt Hill, Odiham, RG29 1DH in the Spring and Summer (20 April to 21 September)
On Wednesdays (our main Club night) paddling times will be as follows:
20th April - 11th May: 6pm for equipment, 6:30 on the water
18th May - 14th September 6:30pm for equipment, 7pm on the water.
We are generally finished by 8:30pm (finish time depends on daylight so tends to be earlier in April and September!)
