    The Watersports Centre


    At the heart of Pugneys Country Park lies the hub of all aqua based activity.

    The Watersports Centre has been pulling in those avid water adrenaline fans for many years. But don’t let that put you off, you certainly don’t need to be a pro to have a go!

    You can bring your own or come and have a go in the taster sessions and courses available for adults and juniors including sailing, windsurfing, kayaking & canoeing and multi-watersports courses.

    Equipment is available to hire daily including dinghy sailing, windsurfing, kayaks, canoes, stand up paddleboards and pedaloes.
    If you’ve never done watersports before, this is your chance to test the water, literally!
