Stand Up Paddle Boarding
Stand-Up Paddle boarding is the latest addition to our available activities. We have a set of SUP’s which can be hired on an hourly basis, at £15 per hour, that will get you out onto the Reservoir.
If you want to hire a SUP, you must be at least 12 years old and for anyone under 18 years old a parent or guardian must stay on site to supervise. You can just turn up during office hours, however, we cannot guarantee that a board will be available for you as we work on a first come first serve basis. If you want to go out together with some friends then contact us directly and we can arrange to have boards available. This is only for groups of 4 – 6 people and the boards will be reserved but please arrive 15 minutes before your time to allow for a smooth changeover.
For beginners we offer a one-hour introductory session on a Wednesday evening, at a cost of £20 per person, which you must be 14 years or older to take part in, and after that you’re good to go!
Our currently scheduled sessions are:

New Monday Night Paddle Club
We now also run a Monday night Paddle Club from 17:00 – 18:30 and then the bar will be open afterwards, this is for anyone 16 years and older and to book your board please see the dates below.
The price for hiring a club board has been reduced from £15 to only £10 as a non member
If you have your own paddle board there is no need to book just turn up and the access charge has been reduced from £10 to only £5.
When you arrive all participants must come to reception to sign in and get the equipment and safety briefing even if you have your own equipment.
We are looking to make this a weekly event for people to enjoy the water and also to socialize afterwards with a nice drink.

There is free parking inside the gates off Icknield Port Road – look for the Midland Sailing Club sign at the road. Put “B16 0AA” into your satnav or search for “Midland Sailing Club”. We also have places to lock up bikes if needed.
Come through the second gates next to the water and you will see a reception desk 20 metres up on the right. Hand sanitiser is provided at the desk and we ask that you use it when you arrive.
Please arrive 15 minutes early on the first day, to give you time to check in at reception and get all the equipment that you will need for the course.
FOOD & DRINKS
There is a café & Bar on site that is open during office hours and we have hot & cold drinks as well as a range of snacks that can be purchased at a good price. We have plenty of seating inside or outside so social distancing is maintained.
