    Booking Details

    Members can only book a place on a pool session a week or so before the session date.

Non-members wishing to come and try can pay £10 and book any session without limits.

    When booking via the website or app, you will receive a confirmation email if you have been allocated a place. If the session is full, you will be added to a wait-list and if someone drops out, you may be allocated a place - you will receive the same confirmation email if this happens.

    If you haven't pre-booked and session is full, you will not be allowed to join the session as we have to adhere to maximum numbers. Furthermore, you may be refused entry to site so please don’t just turn up.

    Cancelling your booking

    If you have booked a place and cannot attend you can cancel your booking via the website. It is not currently possible to cancel via the app. Please ensure you do this so anyone on the wait-list can attend in your place. If you struggle with this, please get in touch.

    Arriving on-site

    Drive up to the main gate and use the intercom to speak with reception - tell them you are with Pirates Canoe Club and they will open the gate.
