Please note: due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, Herts Canoe Club is closed until further notice. We are still taking membership enquiries. Drop us a message by Facebook, Email or Instagram. Keep safe and see you soon.

We are a friendly club conveniently based on Hartham Common by the river Lee in Hertford.

We meet every Sunday morning at 9.30am at our clubhouse in Hertford.

During the summer months we also meet on Tuesday evenings (18:00 to dusk) for those who have been signed off as a Peer Paddler by an HCC Coach.

The club is open to anyone aged 11 upwards.

We run beginner courses from April through to September.  Please check our 'Courses and Events' page or contact us for more information.

We can take you from beginner to experience paddler  in several disciplines. From a tranquil paddle on a Sunday morning to a full on adrenaline filled white-water paddle, you name it we do it including  canoeing, flat water kayaking, white water kayaking, play boating, and sea kayaking. See our 'What We Offer' page if you would like to know more.

The club has a selection of kayaks and equipment (paddles, buoyancy aids, helmets etc.) which can be hired by members for a small fee.
