Varsity Lakes Paddlers Club was formed in 1989 as Nerang River Canoe Club, and is affiliated with Queensland & Australian Canoeing Associations.
We moved to Varsity Lakes in October 2011 and haven’t looked back, the club has grown in membership, but we still retain our friendly atmosphere, our members consist of juniors from 12yrs through to the more mature & energetic 70+yrs.
Club members have competed in Marathon & Sprint races, which are held by clubs throughout Brisbane, the North & South Queensland Coasts and Northern NSW.
The Club itself runs major races throughout the year, around the Varsity Lakes waterways.
The club has Coachs available for learners and technique improvements.
Our Club training is held Saturday mornings (7:00-9:00) followed usually by a chat & coffee.
Saturday mornings (8:00 – 9:00am) are for beginners to come along and have a try. Please contact our Club coach to make a booking.
If you are just beginning and don’t know much about kayaking in general, as with most sports the different sorts of equipment can be confusing. You are very welcome to come along and ask lots of questions and also have a look at differnt boat types, when your ready to start learning please phone the club coach before Fridays, so we can supply a boat and time for you.
