Hinckley Water Activities Club or HWAC, is a community focused water sports club based in Hinckley, Leicestershire - which offers kayaking, canoeing and bellboating to individuals and groups.

The centre is essentially a sports club run by dedicated volunteers who have a passion for the sport! We focus our work on getting the local community on the water to enjoy : kayaking, caneoing and bell boating.

The club is situated in a superb location, with use of a lake and easy access onto the nearby Ashby Canal. Both of these offer our paddlers excellent waters to try our activities in a peaceful, safe and controlled environment.

We operate a paddling session every Thursday evening throughout the summer months, which offers a great opportunity for newcomers and families to enjoy the water. We also run a number of sessions throughout the winter months for older and more experienced paddlers. We also regularly organise trips for all abilities, ages and preferences.

Our Users Include:  - Individuals - Families - Corporate Groups - Scouts - Guides - Local Schools - Youth Groups - Duke of Edinburgh's Award Groups -

We Look Forward To Seeing You On The Water Soon!
