Park and play at pinkston
Garry on Pinkston

Pinkston Watersports is a white water course in Glasgow. We have a regular Wednesday night booking (changed to Thursday from July 2018) at the Pinkston Artifical White Water Course in Glasgow. This is approx 3 Wednesday nights each month and runs from 7.30 to 9.30pm. For the first half hour we have a flat water warm up session and then from 8pm we turn on the pumps and have fun on the course as well as space in the basin.

We have a small number of boats stored at Pinkston and these can be booked on a first come first served basis via – Booking Sheet for Pinkston Club Boats Google Doc

There is no charge for the boats when taking part in the session, however if you book a boat and don’t turn up then a £2 fee applies! Please remember to make sure the file saves your entry


If you are coach and fancy running a flat water session or polo session at Pinkston on the Wednesday please contact Sandy or Graham.

If you are a sea paddler and fancy running a sea practice session contact Sandy or Graham (deepwater rescues, intro to 2 knot tide races or just a bit of a muck about..)
More info about the venue and a map are at
