About this event

Oarsome Chance Paddlesports Taster sessions in Kayaking and Paddle-boarding.

Free sessions available to young people age 9-19.

You don't need any experience, as there will be fully trained instructors who will give you full instructions and a safety briefing. Just make sure you have a swimsuit / swim shorts, a top suitable for going in the water, a towel and change of clothes. If you have a pair of water shoes (or old trainers or plimsoles they can wear in the water) that would be great.

We will provide all equipment and full safety kit including buoyancy aids, and footwear, if necessary.

The hourly sessions will run between 11:00 - 17:30 (times vary), Mon Fri, for two weeks:

From Monday 9th to Friday 13th August

From Monday 23rd to Friday 27th August

Please be aware that session times may slightly vary on the day.

Booking in advance is recommended (and preferable) and registration will also be required on the day. Please note - only two tickets are available per booking, so that we can make sure this activity is available to as many people as possible.

On the day, please make sure you arrive at least 15 minutes before your booked time slot.

If arriving by car, there are parking restrictions on Priory Road and Green Lane which are subject to enforcement - to avoid receiving a fine or causing inconvenience to residents, please park in pay and display short stay car park next to Memorial Green or free of charge in the long stay car parking at top end of Green Lane (2 minute walk).
