About us

Carlisle Canoe Club was formed in 1959 with the objective of introducing people to and sharing the pleasures of paddlesport. We are a large, family friendly recreational canoe club, based next to the beautiful river Eden in Carlisle. Our mission is to encourage as many people as possible to safely enjoy the pleasure of paddling. Our commitment to equity and access, means that anyone over the age of 10 and able swim 50 meters is welcome. We are Sports England ClubMark accredited, having the necessary Child Protection and Safety policies, and we are affiliated to British Canoeing.
