Joining Birmingham Canoe Club

Non members are always welcome at our pool sessions and on club trips. This is an excellent way to get to know the club members and most choose to join the club. The club has a substantial number of modern white water kayaks for the use of club members, non-members are welcome to use this equipment too.
