Established in 1973 Stafford and Stone Canoe Club is recognised as one of Europe’s foremost Canoe Slalom Clubs. We have a continuous history of producing world class paddlers, most of whom have been drawn as beginners from the local schools in Stone and Stafford. 40% plus of the current GB and
England teams are club paddlers. The club and its members organise some of the most prestigious slalom events in the UK and were involved in organising the Olympic Canoe Slalom in 2012 and other global events. The new club house constructed in 2011 provides excellent facilities including club room, catering, changing rooms, gym and canoe storage. We have an active team of coaches within the club who provide instruction to all age ranges and genders.
