Hundreds of paddlers headed to The National Water Sports Centre this weekend for Paddle in the Park. There was plenty on offer; from white water workshops and fun competitions, to having the chance to demo the latest boats and equipment from top manufacturers in our trade village.
Our annual event, ran to coincide with National Go Canoeing Week gave paddlers the opportunity to brush up on their skills or try a new discipline by taking part in our range of workshops. These included introductions to white water on a variety of crafts, female specific sessions as well as freestyle and slalom skills workshops.
Some of our trade partners, which includes some of the biggest and best known brands in paddlesport were exhibiting in our trade village giving visitors the chance to demo a range of products, try the latest paddling gear and speak directly to the manufacturers.
Over on the lagoon families were able to take part in the fun whatever their paddling ability, with many trying canoeing, kayaking and stand up paddleboarding for the first time and giving flat water activities a go.
We will be adding more photos from the event to our Facebook page shortly.
