NW10 Upgrade

Harlesden/Park Royal Sessions just go a whole lot better

We are making improvements to our sessions at NW10 (Harlesden Park Royal).

Thursdays 5:30pm and Sunday 10:30am

To support the rising number of paddlers and the standard of those paddlers at our Thursday sessions we are increasing the number of coaches available. This will mean we can get more people on the water and run sessions to meet the needs of those who are paddling and raise standards even further. We will look at increasing staff at the Saturday sessions as well.

Sessions cost just £5 per person, or £8 for both sessions in the same week. For more information please call 07951 770241 or email sprint@thesharks.org.uk.

We are meeting at the Container in the carpark (free at weekends, but a small change during weekdays) at Disraeli Road, NW10 7AE. We are next to Beit el Zaytoun Restaurant in Park Royal, which is just a few minutes walk from Harlesden Station. So very easy to get to. We highly recommend Beit el Zaytoun, and there is also the Grand Junction Arms just across the canal for some post paddling refreshments. The site is close to Harlesden Station.

These sessions are run in partnership with the Old Oak Common and Park Royal Development Corporation.


This is a flat water site, with a straight section, which enables us to run Sprint training, it also a great site Marathon training, as the canal stretches from East London to Hayes. where it joins the mainline from Brentford to Birmingham. The sessions will be led by Adam Stewart and Neal Underwood.


We provide lessons for beginners at this site as well as training for competitive paddlers in Sprint and Marathon. The whole area is part of a regeneration programme and as it develops so will the facilities we have to offer, so there will be plenty more opportunities for paddle sports. We can also run sessions for Schools and other organisations, such as Scouts, Cadet Groups etcetera. For more information email us: sprint@thesharks.org.uk or give us a call on 07951 770241.

You do not need any specialist kit as we will provide everything you need at each stage of your journey, we usually meet from 5:30pm on a Thursday evenings during the Summer months from April to October and from 10:30am on Sundays all year round..
