Wychavon Kayak and Canoe Club (WKCC) is affiliated to the British Canoe Union and based in Pershore, Worcestershire. Established in 1987, WKCC is involved with various canoeing and kayaking disciplines such as Whitewater Kayaking, Open Canoeing, Sea Kayaking, Surfing and social events.
Where to Find Us
During the lighter summer months (usually from April until September), we will either meet at 18:30 Thursday evening at the Pershore Riverside Centre (next door to Pershore Leisure Centre) or meet at a local river as per our current programme. From our base at Pershore we have quick access to a couple of reasonable weirs depending on water level which are great for all levels of paddler.
During the winter months we meet at the Worcester Blind College Swimming Pool, where we also run courses for all levels of canoeists.
Equipment and Coaching
WKCC has a long tradition of encouraging and developing it’s coaching and has many well established BCU coaches who are always on hand to supervise and assist on all of our sessions.
While we encourage people to eventually purchase their own equipment once they are established, we do have an extensive range of Kayaks for both river and pool use and Canoes together with all of the appropriate paddles and safety equipment you will need to get you out on the water.
If you need any more information on any aspect of the club or this website, please don’t hesitate in contacting one of the committee members listed on our current programme.
