Stroud Valley Canoe Club News & Events

Next pool session - 4th November 2017

October 2017

Stroud Valley Canoe Club run pool sessions generally every fortnight at 7pm at Stratford Park Leisure Centre, in the Indoor Pool during the Autumn/Winter and Spring and in the outdoor pool during the summer.

The final outdoor pool date for Summer 2016 is Thursday 01/09/16.    Try to arrive by 6:50 - we'lll make as prompt a start as possible, as it will probably be too dark to continue much beyond 8:15

Indoor pool dates, on Saturday evenings, are

  • 04/11/17
  • 09/12/17
  • 16/12/17

 For all sessions, aim to arrive at 7pm for 7:15 - 8:45 'on the water'.

Equipment Store and Booking Attendance at a Pool Session

We do not curerently have storage for boats and other equipment at Staford Park, and all our gear is curently stored off-ste.  For this reason, we need advance notice if you intend to come to a pool session - the deadline for saying you'd like to come is generally theFriday evening preceding a Saturday session or the Wednesday evening preceding aThursday session.  You'll need to tell us what equipment you need, and whether you can assist in transporting it to the pool (car with roofbars, or van). Please contact Dave Thomas on 01453 860047. 

Access to Pool

We access the pools directly, rather than going through reception, as follows: 

  • Walk to the left of the outdoor pool and down the service road between the pool and the parkland/children's play area.
  • We access the indoor pool through the door to the left of the large double doors into the plant room, or the outdoor pool through the gate to the right of the plant room. 

If you bring your own boat(s):

  • Either carry them down from the carpark 
  • Or drive down the service road, unload and then move your car either back up to the main carpark or on down to the 'staff' parking spaces further down the service road at the back of the main Leisure Centre building.  The roadway and the area outside the plant room doors must be left clear for emergency vehicles.
  • If the barrier at the top of the service road is down, ask a coach/committee member for details of how to get in
  • Alternatively, when we are in the outdoor pool, the main gate from the carpark MAY be open.

Do get in touch if you have any questions about any of the above!

For further information please contact Dave Thomas on 01453 860047.

Pool sessions cost £7 for SVCC members and £9 for non-members.
