Join Us

We are a members-only club but it is very easy to join and we offer one-off Trial Memberships (see below).

We are open on Tuesdays and Thursdays (meet at 5:00- 5.30pm) from Spring until Autumn.  A coach will be available to assist you on the water.

We also open on Sundays (meet at 10am) all year round but a coach is not always available.

Membership includes use of the Club’s wide range of kayaks, equipment and facilities for a calendar year.  Just complete the following steps and come along to any club session to become a full member:

  • Read and agree to the Club rules
  • Complete an MKC Application Form 2020  (we also have copies at the club)
  • Provide a Photo ID and proof of address (parent’s ID for Juniors)
  • Pay the Membership Fee by cash, cheque or BACS (Adult £90; Junior under 18 £40; Family £160)

Junior Members under 18 must be accompanied by their parent or guardian.

Trial Sessions

If you want to try kayaking before becoming a full member please come down for a Trial Session on any Tuesday or Thursday to have a go with no obligation.  Trial sessions cost £12 for Adults and £5 for Juniors which is deducted from the full membership fee should you decide to join later.
