[ Updated 30th April 2017 ] Our winter pool sessions continue for one more Wednesday evening at Bristol South swimming pool; this year we will go through until 3rd May, though with just 30 minutes pool time for general sessions at 8pm, then 1.5 hours for polo from 8:30pm. As the evenings get lighter, we will move back to the Thursday evening general sessions at Baltic Wharf on Bristol docks, 6pm ish. If you are beginner paddler, please contact our enquiries email address on our contacts page, and come along to the first Thursday of a month.

The marathon guys and girls continue to train through the year on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, 6pm (very-ish) at Baltic Wharf on Bristol docks.

Note: many more white-water trips run at short notice depending on weather conditions; these are normally discussed on our club email list.
