Paddlesport Courses and Jobs

Without question, one of the most popular outdoor pursuits here in the UK is "canoeing", or more specifically paddle sports. Perhaps because of our success as a nation in the sport during international competitions like the Olympics or World Championships, which provide plenty of atheletes for youngsters to look up to. Or maybe because we have easy access to rivers, lakes, reservoirs and of course the sea. Whatever the reason, outdoor centres almost always locate themselves near to a source of water, because they know that without offering some form of paddle related activity, they could lose customers.
