Stand up paddle boarding coming soon!

Have a go at the world’s fastest growing water sport, paddle boarding, when it launches at Stowe Pool in May with a free taster session.

If you can swim and over 8 years of age, are fairly fit and up for a challenge, why not try a new activity that’s running at Stowe Pool?

On Saturday 21 May, between 10am and 4pm, free tasters in stand up paddle boarding will be offered by the company Central SUP. The water sport involves balancing on a board (much like a surfboard) and getting around by using a paddle.

Councillor Andy Smith, Cabinet Member for Leisure & Parks at Lichfield District Council, said: “This is the first time Lichfield’s seen paddle boarding and I am sure lots of people will leap at the chance of having a go for free. If plenty of people try it, stand up paddle boarding will hopefully become a regular activity on Stowe Pool.”

The Central SUP instructors will take out small groups throughout the day. There is no need to book – just turn up anytime between 10am and 4pm on Saturday 21 May. Remember to wear clothes you don’t mind getting wet.
