A bit about us.

Phoenix Kayak Club is in existence for over 20 years. Our Membership has continued to grow Year on Year.
We run Beginners Kayaking courses throughout the Summer months at our Club on the Lee Road
and continue to kayak throughout the winter months with official club trips every two weeks and
a number of members meeting up on a more regular basis to fulfill their paddling ambition.

We are always looking for new members so get in touch with us or maybe do a Beginners Kayaking course first.
