Paddlesports

The Paddlesport club is a kayaking and canoeing club, with over 40 members who range from beginners to experienced paddlers. We meet in the PEC pool on Wednesdays 2-3 and Fridays 8-9. In the pool we focus in basic skills and the progress into canoe polo drills and technique, canoe polo is a fast paced sport that requires fitness and teamwork, we play in competitions with the most recent being the Irish Open canoe polo championships.

We also store many of our boats in the rowing club boat house so we have easy access to jump on the Lagan. The day of going out on the river will be decided weekly depending on availability of coaches.

We organize club trips once a month, trying out a variety of kayaking disciplines e.g. Surfing, River Kayaking, Flat water in order to meet everyones interests. We occasionally do joint trips with other university kayak clubs to mix and meet new people with similar interests.

Our main competition every year is Intervarsities which is held in Dublin this year, we will be pulling all the stops to make sure we are successful at this event.
