The club has a very keen slalom section, who regularly train and compete. Slalom offers a structured and regular training programme to help build skills and confidence on the water. It complements other disciplines including white water river running. It is particularly popular with our junior paddlers, albeit we have paddlers from aged 11 to 50.

Please get in touch if you would like to come along or try a session.  From April our training moves to Symonds Yat, where we practice on the Grade 2 rapid.


The club has paddlers ranked in all divisions. Ranking competitions take place from March to October.

Joining the Team

We welcome new team members of all standards.  This group builds upon skills already learned and progresses to entering competitions.

Senior paddlers will find that there are a number of high ranking paddlers in the club that will provide a challenge during any training session.

Our event

October 15th and 16th  October 2022 is the date of the Symonds Yat Slalom div 2/3 which Cheltenham Canoe Club runs.  All volunteers are welcome regardless of any slalom experience.
