PADDLEPLUS: LET’S PLAY!

Leicestershire's Paddlesport and Outdoors Club

 

WHO ARE WE?

We are a paddlesport and outdoor club based in Leicestershire, formed in 1981. Our mission is to deliver fun, rewarding and varied paddlesport and “plus” activities in a safe and inclusive amateur club environment, for as many local people as possible.

INTRO SESSIONS

Let's Have Fun!

We are a members club, but you can 'try before you buy'.


Sign up for a Taster Membership which lasts for 2 weeks, start with an introductory session and then come to any club night session, at any of our sites, for no additional cost. This gives you the opportunity  to meet us all, and maybe even grab a bite to eat from our BBQ in the summer months.


On your introductory session you will have a dedicated instructor to help you choose your equipment, give you some paddling tips and tell you everything you need to know to get started with PaddlePlus.

 

ABOUT OUR SITES

We operate our club nights over three sites across Leicestershire, as well as running courses and trips all over the country. Head over to our booking page for more details on each session.
