Home of the Rodeo Rabbit.
Join us at RKCC for an action packed year of canoeing and kayaking. Our main focus is to spread our love of water and spend time with an awesome bunch of people. With us you can develop your skills as a kayaker or simply enjoy a relaxing day on the river. We are known for being one of the most sociable clubs on campus and have a great year in-store for you. Keep an eye on our Facebook and Instagram pages to stay up to date on upcoming events and trips, including our FREE taster sessions!
We run river sessions every week at the Wokingham Waterside Centre in Reading, but love venturing out to Dartmoor, Wales, Scotland and even the Alps to find the white water! We also head out to the coast for our surf trip in the summer. To come on our trips it is a prerequisite to be able to swim at least 50m in a pool.
Mondays 9pm-10pm: Meet us at RUSU carpark at 8:30pm for transport to Reading Blue Coats School. Our pool sessions are for practicing skills off the river in a relaxed and much warmer setting. Wear swimwear/shorts/t-shirt/leggings - whatever you feel comfortable swimming in and getting in & out of boats.
Wednesdays 2pm: River session at Wokingham Waterside Centre
Saturdays 1pm: River session at Wokingham Waterside Centre
Our river sessions are very relaxed and often involve paddling to county wier in the town centre and getting donuts, as well as developing our skills of course. We welcome people of all abilities and backgrounds - undergrads, postgrads and non-students. You don't need any previous canoeing or kayaking experience to join the club. We are a dedicated mix of people who are eager to show you how much fun this sport is! We're also lucky enough to have the amazing support of Reading's alumni and paddlers from all over who often join us on our trips.
Please contact us if you have any questions or would like to have a free trial at one of our sessions!
