Belfast Canoe Club




Services Offered

Belfast Canoe Club has a long and proud record as the oldest canoeing club in Northern Ireland. Founded in 1960, it had major influence in the setting up and early years of both the Canoe Association of Northern Ireland (CANI) and the Irish Canoe Union (ICU).

The Belfast Canoe Club paddlers have more international competitive honours than all other clubs in Northern Ireland. In recent years it has been a loose association of 'mature' paddlers and a conduit for scouts to become involved in the sport of canoeing. Despite small numbers, it maintains disproportionate success in competitive canoeing and has always been in the top 3 competitive clubs in CANI. In order to widen the opportunities for young people to become involved, the club re-formed in 2011 on a more formal basis, with the objective of promoting canoeing, particularly competitive canoeing, in the Belfast Area.

We are now actively recruiting both youth membership and adults with basic canoeing skills who would be interested in competitive paddling. We believe this is a niche which is not adequately covered by other Clubs, and we envisage that some individuals, particularly coaches, will be members of more than 1 Club.
