Trials & Join

Trial Sessions

You can try out kayaking with Martlet Kayak Club. Currently some coaches have volunteered to induct inexperienced paddlers in small groups, usually on Tuesday evenings. The membership form and trial fee can be handled online prior to the session and it is best to wait to receive a reply to your trial application so you can be sure a coach is available. Sessions are very dependent on weather and experience and are most definitely not ad hoc and coaches are under 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. Download and fill out the Trial Membership Form.

Weather conditions determine what activity takes place and a session may be cancelled if necessary.

What to bring for a trial kayaking session
