White Water & Sea Kayaking Club North East

About Our Club

About Stockton & Thornaby Canoe Club

We’re a voluntary run charity, affiliated to British Canoeing, promoting white water, touring, sea kayaking, and general leisure paddling. We’re based at the Tees Barrage International White Water Centre and we operate coached session there throughout the summer. We also help members progress with pool rolling sessions and led/coached paddles in the winter. We're 20 years old and have a membership of around 150 paddlers from around the North East. Our boatstore located next to the Tees Barrage houses a large fleet of whitewater kayaks, sea kayaks, and other accessible sit-on-tops. Kit can be hired by our members for taking part in personal and club activity.


We accept membership from experienced paddlers or through any of our introductory courses.
