Hampton Pool Training

Greater London
sup - Up to 12 people


We have booked Hampton Pool for some training. The session will be split between Newbies and Experienced Paddlers.

The Newbies will be given a Taster Session, with the aim of getting all Newbies standing up and controlling their board, including stopping and turning.

For the Experienced Paddlers, there will be paddle stroke, step back turn training and board handling (steering) sessions.

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. Finally, please bring a cycle Helmet that fits you well. There are concrete edges to the pool. If you don't have a helmet or can't get hold of one in time, please let us know, so we can make arrangements for you.


You should 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. Don't forget your cycling helmet.
