Eel Pie Island Club SUP
Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) came to Twickenham in a big way in September 2011 when Active 360 partnered with Twickenham Alive to organise the first SUP races on this stretch of the Thames. The following year, the Blue Mile, a major SUP race was hosted at Twickenham. Since then the annual SUP charity race in Twickenham has become an established event. It has also been an aim of Twickenham Alive to establish a SUP club in Twickenham and this was finally achieved this year.
Eel Pie Island Club SUP (Epic SUP) operates from Twickenham Rowing Club. It is a fully constituted body and is affiliated to Canoe England. It is the fifth SUP club to be established in the country and the first SUP club affiliated to Canoe England on the River Thames.
Twickenham is an ideal place for Stand Up Paddleboarding and the photographs on the website show the idyllic setting, a centre for SUP in London.
