Welcome to the Braintree Canoeing Club web site

Using this web site, the club members will be able to simply and easily contribute to the site whenever they wish, such as “we’re going to Dedham for a paddle this weekend, is anyone interested?”  Members can also be notified by email of these events, as and when they are posted on the site.

This means that the new site will now be very dynamic and solely under the control of the members – you can add whatever you want (details of trips, pictures of trips etc) whenever you want.

It is hoped that the new site will encourage members to actively contribute on a regular basis, making the site much more dynamic, interesting and of greater value to the club and its members.

Club overview

We are primarily a recreation based club based in Braintree Essex, with club trips run throughout the year.  Interests go from local placid water runs through to white-water trips in the UK and abroad.  We have a canoe polo team currently competing in division 4 of the National Polo League and we also have an active sea-paddling contingent and take part in surf trips every year.

Children are actively encouraged to take part in our Saturday morning sessions and even our local river trips, assuming a responsible adult accompanies them.
