Members are encouraged to acquire their own equipment (almost all members do). We hold and maintain a fleet of kayaks and canoes primarily for the use of its members and for running course. The club does not hire out equipment. It is for use for members and non-members participating on courses organised by KCC.

We suggest the following contributions are requested from those wishing to use club equipment to help maintain the fleet.



Club sessions*- Wednesday evenings, Sunday mornings and organised events based in Abingdon and the surrounding area e.g. Blastathon.

  • New attendees will be offered the use of club equipment without requesting a contribution for their first session with the club
  • Members using club equipment for non club activities are responsible for both it and themselves and should possess suitable abilities for the activities they are partaking in.
  • Before borrowing equipment for non-club sessions it should booked and the equipment office informed.
  • Equipment consists of a boat, paddle, BA, helmet and spray deck.
  • Note that as not all members have keys to the equipment shed it would be wise to contact either a committee member or key holder if you need to borrow any equipment.
