Frome Canoe Club invites you the first ranking slalom at the Market Yard Clubhouse.

The event is a flat water Div 4 and Open, 12 gate short course, and is the ideal first slalom to introduce young and old to our exciting Olympic Sport.

The slalom is right next to the newly built Clubhouse, so everything is on site:

  • Changing rooms with underfloor heating and hot showers

  • Refreshments on sale Tea, Coffee, Cake, etc

  • Huge car park right next to the Course

  • Loan of FCC C2's or C1's (just ask at control)

The clubhouse is a short 2 minute stroll from the centre of town with all the high street shops as well as the quirky, boutique and antique shops on the cobbled Catherine Hill.

Frome Canoe Clubhouse is in the Centre of Frome, Next to the Cheese and Grain Building in the Market Yard carpark. From the main shopping street of Frome (Market Place/North Parade) turn into Bridge Street, then in 100 yards turn into the Market Yard Car Park. Go through to the far right of the Car Park to find Frome Canoe Club.

JS Grading


A: Pool or otherwise completely flat water, without enough current to affect the boat.

Even courses that are usually easy can become dangerous in exceptional high water conditions. If in doubt, seek advice or stay off the water.

POSTCODES: Bits of river don't really have postcodes: we show the one for the nearest address we can trace. Putting these into your satnav should get you somewhere near the site, but you might find yourself km away, and even on the wrong side of the river. If you can offer a better postcode for any of the courses, email it to .
