Cherwell Canoe Club are running novice courses this summer in Banbury. These will take place at Woodgreen Leisure Centre, Banbury’s outdoor pool on Wednesday evenings (7pm to 8 pm).
There will be 3 courses of 5 weeks each, running from May through to September. Places are limited so book early to avoid disappointment.
The novice course is a basic introduction into the sport of canoeing and kayaking with qualified instructors in a safe and controlled environment. All the necessary equipment is provided.
The courses are geared for both adults and children although participants must be over 8 years old and under 16s must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. All participants must be able to swim 50 metres.
Each course runs for 5 weeks and as part of the course there will also be an opportunity to take part on a river trip on a local river.
