Southall

The Home of our Paddle Racing Teams

The Sharks have had a base in Southall for many years and have been paddling on the Canal at Havelock for as long as we have been in Southall. For more information call 07951 770241 or email: marathon@thesharks.org.uk.

Saturday at 1pm

We meet in the Undercroft at  Willowbrook Road, UB2 4RJ, whilst at the moment this is the most basic of facilities we are in the process of a huge development of the facilities, which will see changing rooms, community gym and coffee shop, bringing some home comforts to the sport. If you are arriving by car, please park on Havelock Road alongside the green at UB2 4GG, and Walk the short distance to the Undercroft. This is because there is restricted parking in Willowbrook Road and we want to maintain excellent relations with our neighbours.

This is a flat water site, with an excellent straight section of over 1,000 metres, ideal for Sprint training, it also and ideal site for Marathon training, as the canal stretches from Brentford to Birmingham, there are also local locks to practice portaging.
