Welcome to HPPCC!

At Holme Pierrepont Canoe Club you will find a warm welcome and a group of paddlers who are ready to help and inspire you. Whether it is getting started, learning the latest freestyle moves, serious training for competitions or cruising the waterways in an open boat or kayak, there will be something for you.

HPPCC is based mainly around the facilities of the National Watersports Centre at Holme Pierrepont, Nottingham. It is a very active club with a large membership.

We are affiliated to British Canoeing within the East Midlands Region.

We are a Charitable Incorporated Organisation Registered Charity Number 1162096

Resuming paddling at the club

As with all outdoor activities we are limited to 6 people outdoors together at any one time, social distancing must be followed, kit needs to be sanitised and safety protocols will need to be followed. When possible where paddlers book on to a course and need kit for a number of weeks that kit will be issued out for the whole course, especially BAs and Spray decks.

Please note the club has NO access to the following:

  • Indoor Showers – an outdoor shower is available
  • The Whitewater course, unless the paddler has booked directly with the centre
  • The backchannels and daleks

The club is running a number activities, including some open sessions. However, we are not able to accept cash and numbers need to be limited to those allowed by the current government advice. Therefore, to prevent disappointment we are asking you to pre-book online only. Please choose to pay online when booking too.

The club is now able to restart beginners’ sessions which are available to pre-book online only. Please contact us if you are unsure.
