Nomad Kayak Club, Rickmansworth

Sport / Outdoor Adventure

The Nomad Kayak Club offers: canoe polo, white water, marathon, surf and recreational kayaking as well as kayak coaching, trips and competitions across the UK and Europe. We cater for everyone wishing to take up the sport of kayaking!

Formed in 1973, the Nomad Kayak Club has always been based in South-West Hertfordshire, and our current home is located within the grounds of the Rickmansworth Aquadrome.

We are a family-oriented club that is happy to cater for anyone who is able to safely participate in the sport. Our inclusive membership style means that overall costs are kept low enough so that no-one is excluded based on the cost of participation.

The club offers a multitude of canoeing and kayaking opportunities. Our members range from complete beginners through to elite paddlers who represent Great Britain.

If you are keen to find out more, please make contact with our membership secretary (email details below). They will be able to explain more about the club and how to get involved.

It is important for anyone keen on canoeing or kayaking to be safe and competent when on the water. The Nomad Kayak Club offers a number of British Canoe Union (BCU) recognised courses to achieve this.

The club has a number of home water paddling opportunities, ranging from lakes and canals to a sheltered teaching area and competition training facility. If broadening your horizons is appealing, the club arranges many trips across the UK and Europe. Members have competed in international competitions, paddled alpine rivers and even the Colorado in Nevada USA.
