Lee Valley Paddlesports Club will celebrate its one year anniversary on 17 May by attempting to set a new official World Record at the centre for the number of people simultaneously Eskimo Rolling.

Lee Valley White Water Centre’s resident club, whose most famous member is Olympic silver medallist Richard Hounslow, continues to flourish providing paddle sport participation opportunities for everyone with weekly Wednesday club nights.

Members of the Lee Valley white water rafting team who train at the centre successfully qualified for the GB Girls white water rafting team last month. They will now compete at the White Water Rafting World Championships in Indonesia in November for the first time ever.

Only a year ago this group were part of a local netball team with no paddlesport experience

A regular Friday night music night will commence at Lee Valley White Water Centre on Friday 1 May and feature up and coming talent from across the region playing every week until July.

Paddlesport coaching courses are ongoing for canoeists and kayakers of all standards and we have a selection of interesting case studies on participants.

In addition to rafting, kayaking and canoeing Lee Valley White Water Centre also hosts other thrilling white water activities including hydrospeeding, which is similar to bodyboarding but on the rapids and hot dog sessions, which are held on two person inflatables and provide a heart pumping introduction to kayaking on the rapids.

The 2015 Aquathlon season starts on Tuesday 5 May combining a swim in the centre’s filtered lake with a run through the beautiful surrounding parkland. The Aquathlons will run every month until September.
