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. We are currently meeting at Colt Hill on Wednesday evenings and will continue to do so until we move back to the QMC pool in September.
We will be re-starting our Friday evening Junior Club Night at Colt Hill on 4th May.
