Tuesday Evening Club Nights

PCC club night is on Tuesday evenings throughout the year which we split into 2 seasons

Winter Season (October-April)

Meeting at Torbay Leisure Centre pool, 9pm to 10pm

Cost: £3 per member per session

Non-Members may have 1 free taster session

You may bring your own kit to use but please make sure all boats and kit is clean inside and out before bringing into the pool. Tlc have also asked that boats left on the ground outside are washed down with the hose provided before being brought inside. Thanks

Alternatively club boats are available to use for free.  Club paddles, helmets, spray-decks and buoyancy aids may also be used for free.  All kit is subject to availability as any club training courses get priority of use.  

See the club kit page for full details on kit.

There is usually a club course using the pool for training purposes they will be using the far third of the pool which will be roped off for this.

The pool session can be used for general kayak training and practicing of skills: rescues, strokes, rolling, play-boating etc.  Or if you wish just take the opportunity to paddle in the warm.  It can get crowded so for the benefit of everyone please follow our club rules.

Every now and again the Tuesday pool session will be given over in its entirety to a special activity such as kayak football.  Please see the events calendar, club forum and/or newsletter for specific dates and info.

A few rules for attending the pool sessions:

  • All boats must be clean inside and out before they are brought to the pool.
  • Boats to be rinsed off with the hose at the door when entering the pool.
  • When stacking boats before and after the pool session, please keep the emergency exit door clear
  • Please don't park in disabled bays (unless you're disabled of course)

Summer Season (May-September)

Meeting at different places in and around the Torbay area, normally at 7pm

Cost: Free

Locations vary each year so see Events Calendar or the latest newsletter for details.

Feel free to use your own kit if you have it.  If you wish to hire club kit you will need to contact a committee member two days before a trip (at the latest) to organize. Cost will be £2 per session.  Due to parking difficulties the club will not bring spare club boats to most summer paddles because the club trailer is too difficult to park. See the club kit page for full details on kit.

Summer Tuesday night trips vary a lot but usually involve a paddle on the sea or one of the local rivers and estuaries, sometimes involving trips to pubs or having barbecues.  We try to do a bit of everything for everybody and they are usually fine for anyone who understands the basics of kayaking.
