About ICF Canoe Slalom World Cup
The world’s best canoers and kayakers will be on show at Lee Valley White Water Centre between Friday 6 and Sunday 8 June, when the ICF 2014 Canoe Slalom World Cup comes to the UK as part of the UK Sport Gold Event Series.
The London 2012 Olympic venue, recently re-opened following a £6.3million re-development, will host the first stage of the World Cup tour, as paddlers from around the globe battle it out for medals and glory on the centre’s technically demanding 300m competition course.
Spectators will have the opportunity to cheer on Team GB’s canoeing slalom, most notably Olympic Silver medallist David Florence and his C2 partner Richard Hounslow, as well as European Champion Fiona Pennie.
The opening race of the 2014 World Cup Series will represent the first major event to be held at Lee Valley White Water Centre since Team GB’s success at the London 2012 Olympic Games. Spectators will be hoping for more of the same this time around and can ensure they are there to see it by purchasing tickets in advance, with prices starting at just £4 for children and £8 for adults, while family tickets, multi-day tickets and group discounts are also available.
The centre is one of five event venues that form the 2014 World Cup, with races to follow in Tacen, Prague, La Seu D’urgell and Bratislava throughout the summer before the final stage in Augsburg, Germany on 15 - 17 August.
In addition to the adrenaline-pumping action on the water, there will be plenty going on off it too, as families can enjoy the perfect summer day out in the fabulous space of Lee Valley Regional Park with miles of award winning open spaces to enjoy around the venue. There will also be a whole host of activities available to keep children entertained, including face painting, a bouncy castle and many more to be confirmed soon.
