Liverpool University Canoe Club (LUCC) is perhaps the wildest and most awed sports club in the University. Whether you are a seasoned kayaker or a complete beginner you are welcome in our club. Why not join us and give paddling and polo playing a go?

Canoe 2014

We paddle throughout the year and do a variety of disciplines from skills sessions in the pool, improving everyone’s ability; to canoe polo (like wheelchair basketball on water) to white-water rivers! We organise trips most weekends to get out of the city and find some rivers to play on, so come along and get involved.

Pool Sessions

The club meets every week in the University pool for a warm practice session, new members are always welcome to come along and join. Usually we have skills sessions every Thursday 8-10pm and polo every Wednesday 6-8pm.

However, due to Covid-19 we have had to make some changes and will be running covid safe weekly outdoor sessions down at the docks instead until indoor sports are allowed again. Follow us on Instagram (livunicanoeclub) or Facebook or join our mailing list to stay updated! We make regular posts on social media to keep everyone updated with what we can do under these circumstances!

Sam is our pool session guru and Emma is our Polo queen, so chat to them at our sessions or contact them via Facebook/Instagram if you have any questions.

Club Trips

If you want to catch up on the clubs exploits throughout the year and get an impression of the sort of trips we run then check out our social media, or read our slightly outdated club blog at for more details! Unfortunately due to Covid we are not able to run any club trips for the foreseeable future but we will organise something as soon as it is allowed!

If you have any specific questions have a chat to Joe and Joshua.
