Pool Canoeing – Northgate Arena
Session Times – Adults only – School term time only
Kayaking sessions are held at Chester’s Northgate Arena sports complex.
They voluntarily hosted by members of Deva Canoe Club on behalf of Arena’s operator, Brio.
Sessions are adult only (over 18’s) and run on both Monday and Tuesday evenings during term time from 20:00 to 21:00.
3 of Deva’s officers are amongst the coaches present during the Monday evening sessions and would delighted to tell you more about our club and the benefits of joining us.
It’s interesting to point out that most of our new members join as a result of these pool sessions.
We generally recommend that people new to the sport of canoeing start off with a series of lessons at the arena as this enables them to learn and practice the basic skills in a nice warm and safe environment
The club’s experienced instructors will be there to welcome and personally guide you on your paddling journey and to take you to whatever level of ability you aspire to.
On Monday evenings there are generally both Male and Female coaches in attendance
All equipment is provided and all that you need to bring is a swimming costume, T shirt and towel. Goggles & nose-clip are useful but optional.
It is not possible to pre-book places so just turn up on the evening which is convenient to you, report to the reception desk at about 19:30. and ask to pay for a canoeing session.
Get changed in the Dry changing rooms and then bring your green basket of clothes through to the poolside. Don’t hand your clothes basket into the basket store as this closes at 20:00, but leave it by the palm trees.
We meet on the right-hand side of the pool near the bottom of the slide.

We hope to see you at the pool sessions soon.
