‘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 £15 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

Our Come & Try Taster sessions are currently on their winter break and will resume after Easter when water temperatures are somewhat warmer than at present. Register you interest in attending a session by emailing and we’ll contact you with dates once scheduled.
