Greenford Quay

Lessons and Racing

We are starting regular sessions at Greenford Quay on Mondays and Wednesdays from June 13th, starting at 4pm, with an after school club, followed at 5pm by open sessions for all ages wanting to learn to kayak.

We will be operating from The Elsdale, a wide beam canal boat that is moored at Greenford Quay, UB6 0FT. The Elsdale project is still in development but will soon be providing us with club house facilities at the Quay. For more information, please call 07951 770241 or email: greenford@thesharks.org.uk.

There will be sessions for all ages at Greenford Quay and we will work with Horsenden Primary School and host introductory pool sessions during School Holidays.

This programme is still being developed, but we are starting with the following timetable and intentions:

Monday and Wednesday

Start times are the time we expect people to be ready to get on the water, so please do arrive in plenty of time. Lessons will be about 50 minutes.

4pm – 5pm – After School Club for children of school age only.

5pm – 6pm – Sessions for all ages, families and adults welcome as well as youngsters.

6pm – experienced paddlers, we will be using racing boats for these sessions, once we have paddlers ready to this. This is part of our development plan to provide the opportunity for people to take part in competitive canoeing.

The cost will be £6 per session, and £10 if you attend both sessions in a week.

We will be looking at adding in weekend sessions and general recreation sessions. For more information, please call 07951 770241 or email: greenford@thesharks.org.uk.
