What we do

  • Training
    We train hard and we do it with a smile. If you are a beginner, we teach the basics. Sessions focus on technical aspects and endurance in winter months, with race-specific elements as racing season commences.
  • Racing
    We compete in the BDA National League which runs from April to September. Race distances are typically 200, 500 and occasionally 1000 meters.
  • Corporate events
    We are happy to be approached for corporate and charity events, our race schedule permitting. We have hosted many such events and are fully insured with SAGs and risk assessments.
