Super September Events


Super September is back for the third year running!

British Canoeing aim to help raise the profile of canoeing competitions in the UK and to showcase the breadth and diversity of our sport.

The British Canoeing Super September events will see two large mega events taking place, comprising of six key National competitions from the 2018 calendar that demonstrate the high quality of competitions that already exist across the disciplines of sprint, slalom, WWR, freestyle, rafting, and polo.

We hope to see as many of you come along to cheer on some of the best athletes in the world in their fields, to get selfies with Olympians and Paralympians and to give canoeing a go! 


1st - 2nd September 2018

Holme Pierrepont National Watersports Centre, Nottingham

If you come down to Holme Pierrepont Country Park on the first weekend in September, you will be sure to catch some canoeing in action. This weekend will include:

- the Sprint and Paracanoe National Championships on the regatta lake.

- the Freestyle European Open and the Wild Water GB Open on the white water course

- the Polo British Open on the polo pitches next to the wakeboard park.

This mega event will be a great day out for all the family. 

Look out over the white water waves on the course where the freestyle athletes will be performing tricks and stunts in their boats to get the most points to be crowned the champion. Or catch a wild water racer flying past looking to be the fastest to reach the bottom of white water course.

Relax by the regatta lake and watch the Sprint and Paracanoe athletes battling it out to become the National Champions.

Or walk over to the polo pitches, by the wakeboard line, where you will not be disappointed by the action Canoe Polo brings, where tactics, speed and strength will prove which team deserve to be the British Open champs!

The event is FREE for spectators.
