“The finest canoe club in the whole dam universe”

Dabulamanzi Canoe club was founded by a group of paddlers who decided to set up the second canoe club in Johannesburg (after JCC), which would be more conveniently situated in the north of Joburg, in 1979.

The founder members, realising that Emmarentia Dam was to be the premier Gauteng canoeing venue of the future, had the vision to establish a club, which today consistently has a membership of some 1000+ members, comprising world champions in various categories, SA National Team members, SA champions, a strong provincial representation and recreational (fish n’chips) paddlers.

Monday Evening Beginner’s timetrial

Coach Adro will be timekeeping a 3000m (3 x laps) and a 5000m (5 x laps) beginner’s timetrial every Monday evening at 17:30.

This will be preceded by a technique and warm-up session from 16:30.

This is a great way to build up to the longer timetrials!

Please note, there will be no timetrial on Monday the 28th of October, and from the 9th of December to the 5th of January.

Please note that it is a facility that is aimed at improving the Dabs offering to the members, so it is for members and guests only. It’s not a restaurant open to the public at large so you should always be able to enjoy the facilities and find some space.
