SINGAPORE PADDLE CLUB
Singapore Paddle Club is a non-profit, members-only competitive ocean paddling club, run by volunteers. We are committed to the establishment of outrigger canoeing, also known as Va'a traditionally through its Polynesian origin. We are seasonally persuaded to get out of the ocean to get into dragon boats on the river, to support the progression of competitive dragon boat racing in Singapore. As a multi-discipline club we also welcome surfski and stand-up paddlers at our training sessions.
"A canoe is an island; an island is a canoe."- An ancient Hawaiian saying
WHO WE ARE
We are passionate about ocean paddling, being close to nature, discovering and pushing our limits. Through our training sessions by a professional coach, we learn more about ocean paddling, hone our skills and support one another's paddling growth. Our membership is growing rapidly and it already includes a diverse range of young and not-so-young Singaporean and international athletes (29 nationalities and counting). Paddlers and outdoors enthusiasts who share our ethos of intense competition and good sportsmanship are most welcome at SPC. If you love the water and outdoors, keeping fit and being active, join us!
We also actively partner with corporations and community organisations through team building, sharing the benefits of collaboration and teamwork in successfully moving towards a vision.
