2015 British Open 31 Oct/1 Nov

Having recently returned from holiday I will endeavour to open all the entries I have at some point after the bank holiday weekend. I will then post a very provisional start list.

Div 1 paddle ups will be accepted in the order received if space allows. Paddle ups cannot be confirmed until close of entries in 7 weeks' time and I am sure there will be a lot more entries from Prem athletes and internationals during that time. Please be patient.

The entry fee for the British Open/Premier race is £50. There is no need to send a 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.

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.

HPP Prem/Div 1 5/6 September


This event was full by Saturday 22nd August. Entries from premier paddlers received after 22nd have unfortunately not been accepted due to earlier ‘paddle up’ entries which take precedence 2 weeks before the event. I am sorry that I have had to disappoint some paddlers.

Many competitors still do not understand the fee structure for this event. I am still receiving incorrect entries where people have assumed that a double entry fee of £31.00 applies. The fee for a paddle up on Saturday and a Div 1 entry on Sunday is £38.50.

The National Water Sports Centre is introducing a £2 per vehicle parking charge, payable after 9.30 am on weekends, bank holidays and school holidays. This is supposed to apply to casual visitors to HPP, not people involved in competition. Show a race entry card or THIS PHOTOCOPY OF ONE to get free entry.

Water Park race moving to Manvers

Due to continuing problems at the Water Park the 5th/6th September event will move to Manvers Waterfront Boat Club at The Boathouse, Station Road, Wath-Upon-Dearne, Rotherham S63 7DG.

It is about 20 miles from Hatfield Water Park and has a resident canoe club and a lake similar to Hatfield.

We still intend to have a practice day on Saturday and the event on Sunday. Equipment will be available for novices to try out.

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

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

The event is full. Any further entries will be put on a waiting list.

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.

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.
