Canoe and Kayak
Oxford University Canoe and Kayak Club is a friendly and fun club where you can have fun and train in a safe environment. You can compete in white water racing, canoe polo, freestyle kayaking and marathon K1 and K2.

What is canoeing and kayaking?

Kayaking is usually a one person boat with a double ended paddle. Canoeing is with a single ended paddle in an open boat. Just to confuse matters, canoeing is also used as a generic term covering both types of boat. Despite the club’s name, at the moment we only own kayaks. This does not mean that we are a kayak centric club. We currently have some experienced canoeists, so feel free to ask around and someone will put you in contact with them.
