Running from 23rd May to 31st May, Go Paddling Week 2020 is the perfect opportunity for paddlers old and new to take to the water and be part of the biggest paddling event in the UK.

This year, in celebration of the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Tokyo, Go Paddling Week has a theme of Go Go Tokyo. It’ll be a great way to build on the excitement of paddling at the Games.

Who can get involved?

In short, anyone. With taster sessions for those new to paddling, development opportunities and ideas for independent adventures, everyone can join in with Go Paddling Week 2020!

From clubs, centres and organisations to casual paddling groups and individuals. We want you all out on the water, enjoying the best of paddling.

The week has massively grown in popularity over the last few years. Having smashed last years target to get 10,000 people on the water, we’re now really turning up the heat and asking 12,000 of you to go paddling during the week!

Why get involved?

Go Paddling Week is great for people new to paddling.  Go big, go small, go with friends, go on your own…just go for a paddle! We just want you to take to the water and tell us about it.

There will also be a prize draw for everyone who takes part. But we know your main motivation to join in will be your love of paddling!

Pootle on tranquil waters or whizz down heart thumping rapids. Whatever your idea of relaxation is, make sure you take time to do it this Go Paddling Week.
