Try Kayaking

Come & Try Taster Sessions

We invite anyone interested in kayaking with the Club to first attend a ‘Come & Try’ taster session, which gives you the opportunity to try paddling with Nomads while learning more about the Club and how you can develop your paddling with us, on a formal course or for the more experienced at our recreational and canoe polo sessions. Each ‘Come & Try’ taster session is approximately 1½ hours including equipping participants, pre-session briefing, an hour on the water and a post session debrief. The cost is £10 per person – payable in advance.


  • All participants must be able to swim 25m and be confident in open water
  • Participants must be aged 10 and above
  • Youth paddlers under the age of 12 must be accompanied on the water by a parent or guardian
  • Youth paddlers between the age of 12 and 16 MUST have a parent or guardian on site at the Aquadrome during the session

Dates for next sessions:

Our first ‘Come & Try’ taster sessions of 2022 were held at the Rickmansworth Festival over the weekend of 21st/22nd May. Dates for June will be posted shortly.
