Pool Sessions

Pool sessions are held on Friday evenings every 2 weeks at the Zest Community centre in Upperthorpe. Bookings can be made using the link next to the session you would like to book on our Events page.

You should arrive at 7:00pm in order to be signed in and changed ready for the session to start at 7:30pm. Sessions last for either 50 minutes for a full session, or 25 minutes if you would prefer to paddle for half a session.

The pool provides a nice warm environment for first time paddlers, as well as somewhere for more advanced paddlers to practice their skills or learn to roll.

What to Bring

You will need a regular swimming costume and an old t-shirt that you don't mind getting wet. All other equipment such as helmets, buoyancy aids, boats, paddles and spraydecks will be provided.

Can I Bring My Own Equipment?

You are welcome to bring all of your own equipment apart from a boat. All of our boats have been prepared for use in the pool and we have a large range of sizes and styles to suit all.

Any equipment you bring must be clean, safe, and appropriate for use in a pool.
