Imperial College London (ICL)


Feeling inspired by the Tokyo 2020 Olympics? Whether you’re a complete beginner or a gnarly V+ river runner, joining the Canoe Club is a great way to add to your Imperial experience! We are the most active student-led canoe club in London and welcome paddlers from universities all over the city. Our main attraction is our regular white-water weekend trips around the most picturesque parts of England and Wales, including Snowdonia, the Lake District, and Devon. These trips are a great way to get out of London and have loads of fun. We usually head further afield a few times a year to the likes of Scotland, the Alps, and Norway catering to differing skill levels so everyone has a chance to experience foreign white-water (Summer Tour is an ICCC classic). Some of our more skilled members have ventured on expeditions as far as Georgia, India, and Vietnam with their kayaks! The best way to see what ICCC has to offer is at our weekly pool sessions on Tuesday evenings at Ethos. You can get to grips with the basics or improve your freestyle tricks, then finish off with a few games of canoe polo. We then head to the Union for a pint or two after (and often cake), and we also hold regular socials/sports nights! Imperial College Canoe Club is the perfect place to learn a new sport and meet some great people. We look forward to seeing you on the water soon!
