The Big Paddle
There is a fantastic opportunity for Teessider’s to experience the River Tees first hand at the Palm Big Paddle day at Tees Barrage International White Water centre.
The event which is taking place on Sunday 23rd June is an opportunity for members of the public to participate in 20 minute kayaking taster sessions or for the more adventurous there is the chance to have an one hour guided kayak tour down the River Tees.
There will be also be a cardboard Canoe race for 8-15 year olds and one for adults, this event will test the ability of participants to construct a cardboard canoe which can be made in advance of the event and in a fun filled race test their construction skills.
Chris Walker Operational Manager at the Tees Barrage International White Water Centre said “The Palm Big Paddle Tour Day at the Barrage promises to be a n action packed fun day and an ideal opportunity for members of the public to have a go kayaking free of charge, although we do hope participants will make a small donation on the day to local charity. Even if people do not want to get physical and participate it promises to be a great day with the opportunity to see some of our more accomplished kayakers testing their shills on the white water course.”
