Spectator Activities – Other ways you can get involved over the weekend

The 2019 ICF Canoe Slalom World Cup London, presented by Jaffa, will have a range of activities to entertain all members of the family.

Across the weekend, alongside supporting the British team as they take on the world’s best paddlers as they prepare for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, ticket holders can also access the following range of activities across five themed zones for FREE!

Go Paddling

If you like what you see and fancy having a go yourself then head to the lake to jump in a kayak and see if you could be a future Olympic canoeist!

The sessions are led by an instructor and participants will be provided with a kayak, paddle and buoyancy aid.

You will wear your own clothes for the activity and whilst most participants just get a wet bum but there is always a chance of falling in in our sport. We therefore advise people to consider bringing some spare clothes.If you are keen to take part it is recommended you wear a long sleeve t-shirt or light sweatshirt, lightweight trousers or leggings, and closed toe shoes (no sandals or flip flops).

All participants are required to remove watches and jewellery, including earrings and nose piercings.

The minimum age to participate on the water is 8 years old.

Jaffa Duck Race

Not only can you see the best paddlers paddlers take on the white water, you can also watch world class rubber ducks*take on the same challenge!

Head to the Jaffa Zone in the Expo on Saturday to grab a duck to enter in the Jaffa Duck Race! Ducks will then be released into the water and battle their way down the course in what promises to be a quackers race!
