Olympic Selection

The entry fee for Olympic Selection in October will be £75 for the 3 days of competition. There is no need to send an entry card with the fee, but I do require all the information you would normally put on the card.

English Championships 2015

Yorkshire Slalom Committee apologise unreservedly for the confusion over the results and prizes for the English Championships. We only realised at the end of the event that we did not have time to do the calculations; it took a long time even to get the Pan-Celtic and Inter-Regionals sorted before a midnight prize-giving.

Clearly linking results to English Pan-Celtic results did not work. We will sort the results and prizes asap, and publish the lists on the website, with suggestions as to how people can collect their prizes.

Marple Div 3/4 August

The Marple Div 3/4 race listed for 29th and 30th August will now take place on 5th and 6th September.

Harefield Div 3/4 15th/16th August

Will now be held at Shepperton Weir, on the river Thames, due to construction works at Harefield. You can come for either day or both days.

Location: Lock Island, Shepperton, TW17 9LW

Please use the car park off Dockett Eddy Lane - drop off boats by the lock but do not park there.

This is a fantastic site, with camping adjacent to the course. There are changing rooms and of course food aand drinks served throughout the day. At this time of year, it is an excellent entry level event, so great for all those new paddlers that have taken up this sport this year.

There will be no late entry fees, so you can just turn up on the day, but it would help us plan for the event if you could let us know if you want an entry. We will have boats to borrow, C2s and C1s as well as K1s, so you can give another class a try.

2016 Slalom Calendar


HPP events are currently provisional and subject to clarification with the venue, and there may be further changes if the HPP events change.

Applications to run Div 2, 3 and 4 races next year should be in by 1st July. Entry forms are in the Organiser's Pack or you can email the details to me.

With the change to portable points there will be no multi-division events in 2016. Please give your first choice of division and your second choice of division. Your first choice cannot be guaranteed as it will depend on the outcome of the venue review and on having a suitable event mix.

Applications to run Prem and Div 1 races next year should have been in by 1 June.

What to do if you get promoted

Don't wait for your promotion certificate - it may take some time, and you'll want to get on with racing in your new division. MORE>

HPP Prem/Div 1 5-6 September

If you have already put in an entry, or intend to, please read this.

Llandysul Div 1/2 10th/11th October

2015 British Open

The entry fee for the British Open/Premier race has been set at £50. Entries are now open - please post to Anne Hounslow, Torcross, Hannah's Lane, Westbury - sub - Mendip, Wells BA5 1JD or email . There is no need to send card, but I do require all the info you would normally put on the card. Entries are not firm until the entry fee is received.

The Slalom Committee have decided that instead of inviting the top Division 1 ranked athletes, paddle up will be included subject to there being space up to the strict entry limit of 200.

We are looking for volunteers to help with boat control, safety and forerunners, please drop me an email if you can help.

There will be no paddling officials runs, but I will be looking for demo/forerunners.

Paddling Up

If you are ranked in Division 1, 2 or 3 you can enter races for the next Division up from your own. Take the opportunity to experience bigger water and compare yourself with higher-ranked paddlers! MORE>

But please note: The "host" divisions for any race (Div 1s at a Div 1, Div 1s and Div 2s at a Div 1/2 and so on) have priority over paddle-up entries until two weeks before the race. Until then, the organiser can't confirm that you have a place, however early you got your entry in.
