We are starting our Summer Sessions on Monday 15th April. Sessions are suitable for all standards, beginners at 5pm and more experienced paddlers at 6pm. We can also arrange adult sessions later if required. Please contact us on 07951 770241 or email: sprint@thesharks.org.uk.

We are meeting at the Container in the carpark (free at weekends, but a small charge 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.


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. We also hold lessons for beginners from School Year 3 and up, we also run adult lessons, so no experience is not a barrier, get in touch: 07951 770241 or email: sprint@thesharks.org.uk.


We provide lessons for beginners at this site as well as training for competitive paddlers in Sprint and Marathon, we have also used the site to develop Wild Water Racing paddlers. 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 5pm on a Monday and  Wednesday evenings during the Summer months from April to October and from 10:30am on Saturdays the rest of the year.
