Venue Hire

All the facilities at Pinkston are available to hire; that's how we operate. Clubs, coaches, schools and other organisations can hire the flat water basin, the whitewater course, the meeting rooms or the whole centre.

See below for how to use Pinkston as a group. If you want to find out more about existing groups using Pinkston, see Things To Do

Group Hire

Group Hire is designed for existing watersports clubs and organisations who have their own equipment and leadership. Pinkston facilities are available to hire as a one off, or for regular sessions.

To hire the venue on a regular basis, one or more members of the group must be trained as an ‘External Site Operator’ (ESO). This training will cover how to safety use the venue and facilities. Please contact us for more information.
