About the Upper Hamble Canoe Club (UHCC)

The Upper Hamble Canoe Club (formerly FMCC) is based on the River Hamble, out of a building called The Bark Store at Quayside, Botley, Hampshire.

We offer family recreational paddling, helping our members sample all facets of the sport in a safe, coached environment, whilst having fun. Click here for an idea of what we do.

Our coaching sessions aim to be informative and fun. Every one is taken by at least one trained leader, who will help you gain and build upon your skills to really make the most of your time on the water.

The club paddles all year round and arranges many away trips to other waters in order to experience all aspects of the sport, including placid water and canal type paddles, kayak surfing, sea kayaking, white water river running, canoe camping, indoor pool sessions, and much more in between.

Members are offered coaching and encouragement as they progress through the BCU (British Canoe Union) star system - including Paddlesport Start, Paddlepower and Cross Stream Challenge certificates - at a rate that suits their individual skill and enthusiasm.

We run both Full and Associate memberships. Full members are welcome to paddle with the club during all canoeing sessions, while Associate members do not join in with sessions, just using the club facilities to store boats and other small watercraft.

The Upper Hamble Canoe Club is run by a team of dedicated volunteers. They manage the day to day running of the club and the long term direction the club takes.
