AquaPaddle is the name of the free-timed 5km social paddle run by volunteers. It’s all paddling abilities on different craft and waterways across
the country. The timed social paddle provides an opportunity for those who want to improve their fitness and wellbeing, meet other like-minded paddlers and have fun!

This is a short paddle of 3 miles, which is a friendly race, but believe me, you are not likely to be last as most people are on paddle boards. Having said that, a few paddle boarders are motoring along at 6mph!

It starts at the club, but you must sign in on the Molesey side of the river, so park at the club, and then you can paddle across for a friendly but important briefing. Or if you have your own boat, head straight there for about 9:30, where there is plenty of parking.

Suggested arrival time to club 9 – 9:10 am

Please note you do need to be an independent paddler to participate, and it is hosted independently of Hampton Canoe Club.

How to Register

See when the next AquaPaddle at Hampton is on the link below. In theory, they run every other Sunday, but it is weather and flow-dependent. You must sign up online prior to attending here:

This takes minutes, but make sure you sign in as using a K1 (if you are using one); otherwise, it automatically signs you in as a SUP user.

Then, print your number to stick on the front of your B.A.

You’ll also need a high vis (one spare in the club drawer).

You can also order a high vis with your personalised number printed onto it for future participation in this event for £15:

A Good Cause…

Money raised by AquaPaddle supports BlueSpace or blue therapy sessions for those who need them for mental or physical health reasons. We have built a network of Delivery Partners from the paddling community across the country to provide these sessions to their local communities. Please read more here:
