Canoeing offers a wide range of activities, some based on competition and others (less formalised) based on journeying and adventuring. There are many different types of canoeing including; Canoe Slalom, Freestyle Kayaking, Canoe Sailing, Polo, Sea Kayaking, Sprint Racing and more!
To promote and develop canoeing for disabled people, the British Canoe Union & Canoe England use the concept and term Paddle-Ability to address the issue of participation in canoe sport and canoe recreation. Paddle-Ability focuses on the individuals' ability in canoeing rather than disability.
Go Canoeing is a Canoe England initiative aimed at opening up the sport to new participants and encouraging those with some canoeing experience to take to the water more regularly and become more active in the sport.
By providing a range of captivating and inspiring opportunities and resources, we are confident we can significantly increase the number of people who paddle on a weekly and monthly basis. The project, which is part-funded by Sport England, will target the adult and family leisure markets and aims to demonstrate to the nation how fun, social and accessible canoeing can be.
