From October to late March the club meets at the Rugby School swimming baths on a Friday evening. There are two 25 min. sessions from 7:15 pm and 7:45 pm.
The Rugby School pool is in Horton Crescent , Rugby.
The pool, although large, does not enable the club to provide the same style of structured coaching as happens at Draycote, for those wishing to develop their skills in the BCU 1 2 3 star awards. However, it does enable members who wish to learn/improve a particular stroke or skill to practice under the guidance of one of the club coaches, normally on a one-to-one basis which does not normally occur at Draycote. Paddlers requiring any help or suggestions of what to do please make themselves known to the Pool Duty person, who will ask a club coach to offer assistance.
Please ensure that when booking a boat you ask for the session you want and note that this is subject to boat availability. More information on Boat Booking and Fees.
We only have the use of 12 boats per session. Before or after your canoeing session you may swim if you wish. A lane of the pool is sectioned off for those who want to swim. It’s also possible to just have a swim if you wish.
We do not allow personal boats to be used except for special cases and by prior arrangement and with agreement by the Committee.
Own paddles may be used but only after being checked for sharp edges by the Duty Person. Paddles with metal tips must not be used.
At the moment SUP’s are not catered for in the pool. Please see the SUP page for more information.
