September 2015 will see 300 of the world’s top Canoe Slalom athletes descend on London to battle it out at the largest global canoeing event outside of the Olympic Games.
The 2015 ICF Canoe Slalom World Championships will see competitors from 55 countries taking on the technically demanding Olympic course at Lee Valley White Water Centre, the scene for Team GB’s stunning double-medal triumph at the 2012 Olympic Games.
The event will see the World Championships return to the UK for the first time since 1995 and comes hot on the heels of last year’s Canoe Slalom World Cup, where the British team scooped an impressive medal haul of seven golds and one silver.
World Champions will be crowned in five disciplines and with qualification for the 2016 Rio Olympics also up for grabs, the five days of fierce competition will witness some nail-biting action and you could be there to see it all!
As well as world-class sport there will be plenty of free family-friendly activities on offer, with a bouncy castle, climbing walls and even an opportunity to try your hand at paddling, making it a great family day out!
All-day tickets for Saturday or Sunday are £22 for adults and just £5 for under-16s. There are discounts in place for Family, Weekend and Competition (all five days) tickets as well as for British Canoeing Members. Car parking can be booked with your ticket at just £3 per car.
