White Water Pass. Enjoy some white water action.

The White Water Pass is for experienced paddlers who are competent on white water and can self-rescue.

It’s a discounted pass of £5 for the day, which will enable you to demo equipment and paddle your own equipment on the white water course.

Opening Times

The White Water Pass is available from:

  • Saturday 1st June: 09:30am – 5.30pm
  • Sunday 2nd June: 09:30am – 4pm

Please be aware of the schedule and what events and competitions are taking place on the course. On Sunday at 12pm, we ask that paddlers allow space for the SUPX competition to take place.

Please note that the use of the Grade 3 rapids on the White Water course at the National Water Sports Centre is considered to be an extreme sport and therefore carries risks higher than normal activities.
