Hampton Pool Training - March

Greater London
sup - Up to 10 people


We have booked Hampton Pool for some training. Depending on the split of the group the session will be split between Newbies/Novices and Experienced Paddlers.

The Newbies/Novices will be given board skills, including easy board turning, moving around your board and improved paddle stroke, with the aim of getting all Newbies standing up and controlling their board, including stopping and turning. The Novices, should be doing easy turning and able to move about the board easily. All will practice self rescue.

For the Experienced Paddlers, there will be paddle stroke training, board handling (steering) sessions and step back turns. The aim is to get you confidently moving about your board.

We hope to have equal numbers of Newbies and Experienced Paddlers.

What to bring

Please bring a wet or dry suit. The water is heated, but this pool is outside and the air temperature in January is likely to be cold. Also bring a towel and change of clothing for afterwards.

To give you a sense of what to expect here is a report from a previous session at the pool -


You should be able to swim 30 meters, have a reasonable balance and a sense of adventure.


All Newbies will be given a buoyancy aid, the board and paddle, shown how to use it. You will be taught about safety and how the river works, all before entering the water. On the water you will put into practice what you learn on land. Hopefully, within the hour, you will be standing up, paddling and having a lot of fun!

All Experienced Paddlers please bring your board (cleaned beforehand) and a buoyancy aid if you have one.
