Bramston is a small friendly canoe club based in Witham, Essex. We are a very active club and our members paddle all year round in a wide range of canoeing and kayaking activities such as sea kayaking, open boating, white water and surf.
If you have never paddled before or just want to improve your roll, we have a safe and warm environment where you can practice and learn. We meet for pool sessions on Monday evenings 19:45 to 20:45 at Witham Leisure Centre, Spinks Lane, CM8 1EP for training and to arrange paddling trips.
British Canoeing instructors are ready to help you in every aspect of canoeing & kayaking. If you are under 18 years of age you must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times whilst in the pool.

Bramston Canoe Club is not a business or run for profit.
Bramston Canoe Club is a Club, made up of a group of like minded individuals who enjoy paddling and want to share their passion and go paddling with others. The Membership fees pay for the club canal licence, club equipment (kit in the cupboard at the pool) and British Canoeing affiliation. The pool fees pay for the weekly swimming pool hire. Any profit the club is lucky enough to make from the pool sessions goes back into the club (e.g. updating and replacing club kit).
All committee members are club members that volunteer their own free time to help with the smooth running of the club. They are all unpaid.
All coaches are club members that volunteer their own free time at club pool sessions, club trips and club training sessions. They are all unpaid. The club sometimes pays the fees for relevant training courses like welfare, safeguarding and child protection.
For all members and coaches, paddling is their hobby. They pay for their own additional British Canoeing training, safety courses and coaching updates for their own personal paddling improvement and donate this knowledge and their time to help other members.
We all work as a team helping each other on our paddling journey together.
