Please note: due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, Herts Canoe Club is only accepting new members who already have prior experience in their chosen craft, e.g. British Canoeing 1* award. We are not able to accept beginners at this time. Drop us an email, a message on Facebook/Instagram or call 07368 655071 to discuss joining us.

Update 05/11/20: the club is currently closed due to the lockdown in England.

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 years and 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.
