Newbury Canoe Club is situated on the Kennet and Avon Canal. The clubhouse is on the south bank of the canal, to the rear of the Newbury Public Library. The immediate stretch of water allows paddlers to paddle continuously for 1000m before a portage is necessary. Thereafter it is possible to paddle as far as Bristol to the West and Reading, London and beyond to the East.

Since the completion of the clubhouse in 2017 we have continued to grow as a club, welcoming experienced paddlers and training many new paddlers on our beginners' courses. 

Newbury Canoe Club organises the Waterside Series each year - the largest racing series in the country, and has an established history and strong active involvement in sprint and marathon kayaking.

Being registered with British Canoeing and running as a members based club NCC prides itself on ensuring that all members paddle safely and show respect to all other users and wildlife of the waters. Whilst they are not accountable for the behaviours of others, members aim to be ambassaders and positive role models to all users of the waters by abiding by the 'Paddlers code'  https://www.britishcanoeing.org.uk/access-and-environment/environment-good-practice
