The Veterans Paddlesports Australia was established as a club for returning service members but was later extended to paddlers associated with current and past Defence members continuing to provide a challenge for all paddlers. While this club is not endorsed by the Defence Sports Council we still welcome current Defence Members.
The club also encourages injured veterans however due to our geographic dispersion are not able to provide dedicated support to cater for disabilities at this time. If you have injuries and would like to paddle contact the club and where possible we will direct you to a club in your area with facility to support you.
The club was formed from the RAAF Canoe Club which disbanded in 2018. The paddlers within in the map of Australia is copied from the RAAF Canoe Club Logo to reflect the origins of Veterans Paddlesports Australia.
