Frome Canoe Club has been in existence since 1976 and is based at Market Yard in the centre of Frome, next to the Cheese & Grain. After having existed in temporary accommodation and derelict portacabins for many years, in 2007 it took ownership of a brand new clubhouse.
It is a friendly club and offers a range of activities from gentle paddling on local rivers to rough water paddling in the South West, and in Wales, Scotland and Europe. Other activities include surfing, and slalom competition. The club is affiliated to the British Canoe Union and runs a full programme of coaching from taster sessions and star tests on the river Frome to introduction to white water over weekends on the rivers Exe and Dart.
In the summer there are weekly sessions on Wednesday evenings at Market Yard and on many Friday evenings at Langham Farm.
In the Winter there are pool sessions at Frome Leisure Centre on Friday evenings and general sessions at Langham Farm on some Sunday mornings. The winter months are when most of the river trips are run.
