With the support of Tesco Groundworks Scheme we were able to offer the opportunity to over 40 young people through local youth groups and organisations to take part in a week long kayaking course over the summer holidays. As part of this course the young people were able to get a paddlepower passport and certificate, and many by the end of the week were paddling down the white-water course. We hope they all had as much fun as we did, but the smiles suggested they might have! One of the objectives of Pinkston Water-sports is to ensure that everyone is able to experience the fun and wider benefits that water-sports can provide. Everyone at Pinkston is looking forward to continuing to run these and similar sessions in the future, and hope to see some of those who took part over the summer back to join in some of the other activities that we have on offer.
Pinkston Water-sports, in the heart of Glasgow, offers a range of facilities for taking part in water activities. The links below offer a bit more information about the activities we have on offer. These range from learning to kayak or canoe, taking your first steps on our exhilarating white water course, open water swimming, and white water rafting. We are also a social enterprise and one of our key objectives is to promote opportunities to participate in watersports to the local community. Please get in touch for further details.
