Hemel Hempstead Canoe Club was formed in 1975, and existed briefly under the name "Two Rivers Canoe Club", before the current premises were established at Nash Mills Recreation Centre on Red Lion Lane.
Over the years the club has accommodated all kinds of paddling, including marathon, slalom, touring and canoe polo. At one time we were in the top six ranked competitive clubs in the UK. We have produced champions and international paddlers in all disciplines.
Our local water is the Grand Union canal, on which we host the annual Eastern-District Hasler (National Championship) race in Autumn. We also run our own Summer and Winter mini-marathon series. Plus we also compete in events hosted by other clubs both within and outside the region.
We welcome all-comers from beginners to experienced canoeists (although under 14s must be accompanied by an adult) and have a range of loan equipment, including boats.
