The Eyot Centre is home to two thriving paddle sports sections, a D of E section and a water rescue service for community events. In addition, the centre also organises and plays host to a number of competitive events.
Canoeing and Kayaking
Henley Canoe Club coaches follow the British Canoeing (BC) coaching and awards scheme using their range of up to date craft and ancilliary equipment.
Paddling trips are run from the centre to locations across the home countries and abroad including The French Alps.
The club provides a programme of canoeing and kayaking throughout the year. There are club meetings weekly for Youth (14-17 years) and Adult (18+ years) members . During the warmer spring and summer weather we run in addition a club for Junior (9-13 years) members. In the winter we run a series of indoor swimming pool sessions.
Instruction courses are also held for members and non-members on demand.
