Open Canoe Association


Purley Canoe Club is now a member of the Open Canoe Association (OCA), which is a national organisation for open canoeists. The OCA provides a wide range of activities throughout the year and across the country, to accommodate the wide range of abilities within the association. This includes taster sessions for complete beginners and people who are new to the sport right through to a few days camping trips, white water trips and sea trips.

activitiesAs a member of the OCA, Purley Canoe Club members can participate in these events and benefit from the excellent coaching that the OCA provides to all its members. Purley Canoe Club hopes that our membership of the OCA will enable our club members to develop their interest in open boating as well as develop their skills in this exciting and challenging discipline of paddlesport.
