…The Club

A Brief History of our Club

Our club was formed in 1968 as Kingsthorpe Canoe Club, and renamed two years later as Northampton Canoe Club.  It has moved its paddling base around the town over the years mainly operating from Midsummer Meadow.

In July 1999 we moved to the Nene Whitewater Centre. The club is predominantly but not exclusively a white water club.  We are lucky that we have the Nene Whitewater Centre as our base, providing consistently paddlable white water, as well as a beautiful stretch of the river Nene for beginners and those who prefer placid water.
