Purley Canoe Club (PCC)

PCC was formed in 1991 to promote paddlesport activities, including canoeing and kayaking activities. Our Values, Purpose and Vision enable us to achieve this goal. 

Whilst the club is all about having fun on the water we put a great deal of emphasis on safety and training. This allows new paddlers to develop skills at their own pace within a safe environment.
