Getting Started

Do you want to have fun?

If you have answered yes to the above question, then you have qualified to join The Sharks.

The Sharks is a Club with a difference, we have a mission to get people active, having fun is the best way to be active, the best way to learn and the best way to succeed.

As a Club we operate in the community bringing sport to people, we work closely with local authorities and other organisations in West London to maximise the number of people we can get actively involved. We hold sessions in Harefield, Greenford, Southall, Uxbridge, Osterley Park and Hayes.

What do you need?

Not a lot, we can provide all the specialist kit required, from boats to learn in to specialised boast to race in.

We will provide all the safety equipment and can even provide transport to events and we can keep the costs down. Most of our sessions cost just £5.

We will also run tailor made sessions for groups, such as Scouts, Cadet Groups, clubs, schools and any other group, parties and we can arrange one-to-one sessions.

What to wear

Sensible clothes according to the weather, remember in the Summer you are outside, it may be hot, but you also need to protect yourself from sunburn. If it is wet, you do not want to be wearing heavy cotton which will get very uncomfortable when wet.

No jeans, leggings are ideal, shorts if it is warm and on your feet plimsolls or other thin shoes.

There is a lot of specialised kit you can buy, but please do not spend your money until you have had ago and decided you want to continue.
