Welcome to Manchester Canoe Club.
Manchester Canoe Club is one of the oldest Canoe Clubs in Great Britain. It was founded in 1933, and since then has been involved in the development of the sport, particularly in the areas of river touring on both placid water and white water, and the competitive disciplines of White Water Racing and Canoe Slalom.
Our aim is to enable people of all types and ages to enjoy paddling safely on moving water and to improve their skills by providing a community of like minded people.

The reason that we always put the Lune on the calendar is that it is unusual in that it makes a good paddle at most water levels.
Pool Sessions 2013
The nights are drawing in, but don’t despair, the baths sessions at Hazel Grove Swimming Pool return on Sunday 6th October 2013, with the last session on Sunday 30th March 2014. This year we have Beginners, Rolling and Support Strokes courses running in addition to open sessions.

Alex Rubin came up with the idea first - a trip to Lee Valley just to get assessed for the Olympic course - and booked himself onto a course, and then pursuaded some others of us that it was a good idea. I wasn't convinced, a whole day just to get someone to tell you that you are competent to paddle down a man-made course, even if it is the Olympic slalom course.
