About Us

Clapham Canoe Club is a small friendly club that specialises in Canoe Polo. The club was established in 1990 with financial help from Lambeth Council. We also run a Beginners session, which is open to the public to learn the basics of kayaking. 

The club is based in Clapham, (South London), where it has run weekly beginners and polo sessions at Clapham Leisure Centre since the club started. The polo session moved to Tooting Leisure Centre, which has a larger pool,  in 2010.

The club has a small membership however there is a hard core of members who have been playing polo regularly with the club since the club began. Our polo team is currently competing in Division 2 South in the National Leagues, (approx 30th out of 100 teams in National League). We also compete in the Regional league and some summer tournaments.

We have kayaks and kit stored at both pools, which are available for use at club sessions.

We welcome newcomers to our sessions but please contact us first.  You must be aged over 18 years old and able to swim.  

The club is affiliated to British Canoeing.
