About Nottingham Kayak Club

NKC was founded by Alan Witham in the 1960s from ex-members of the Peveril School Canoe Club. A few of those original members are still paddling & helping run our sessions today. Others are still involved in canoeing as officials.

Early premises were under an hotel on the banks of the Nottingham Canal, in the centre of the city.

This gave way to an old wooden shack on the current site

The wooden shack in turn was replaced in the mid 1970s by the more substantial building that houses the club today. The club benefited from London 2012 post Olympic Funding for new changing rooms and a re-fit of the clubroom has just been completed.
