Welcome to Oulton Broad Water Sports Centre!

Daily Hires Now Available at weekends!

Hire a stand up paddle board at Oulton Broad Water Sports Centre. Try stand up paddleboarding for a couple of hours or enjoy exploring the Broad with a sit on kayak.
We are currently taking online bookings in advance for weekends, 10am till 4pm. You can also just come along on the day, but we have a limited capacity and may be full.

Please see the Daily Hire booking page for more availability, if you’d like to paddle during the week as a group of six or more, please drop us an email at [email protected]

Please note that due to the ongoing restrictions, we are are not able to run all of our activities and courses at present, and are limited to daily hires.

We are currently run by a small team of dedicated volunteers and are working hard to get running again, so please be aware that enquiries will be answered, but this may take a little longer than usual. Thank you for bearing with us!


Oulton Broad Water Sports Centre is located near Lowestoft on Oulton Broad, one of the Suffolk Broads. This provides the ideal setting for water sports training. For many years the Centre has provided a range of courses for both adults and children (age 8+), operating on the safe broads’ environment. The courses are run by a team of dedicated instructors, who are on hand to provide high quality instruction. The Centre is fully equipped with dinghies, canoes, kayaks, paddle boards and safety equipment. Indoors we have a classroom as well as showers, changing facilities and toilets.

A variety of water sports activities and courses will be run throughout the year, with the majority of on-the-water training running seasonally from April to October.
