getactiveabc: Something to wet the appetite for the bank holiday!

The summer always really kicks in with the last bank holiday weekend in May so keep reading for our round-up of ideas, inspiration for things to do and a fab promotion for a truly getactiveabc family day out!

The weather forecast is for sunshine and warm temperatures. With this in mind, you will be in the mood for a very cool offer from our team at South Lake Watersports – a special 50% off watersports activities throughout the bank holiday weekend on Saturday 29, Sunday 30 and Monday 31 May


Experiencing the scenic Craigavon City Park from the water is an exciting and fun activity, and South Lake Watersports Centre offers perfect sheltered water for you to learn and practice your skills. With a wide range of kayak, canoe and stand up paddleboard experiences, we cater for beginners right up to those wishing to learn advanced skills for paddling on moving water. Our coaches are all BCU/CANI qualified and they will ensure you have a safe and fun experience. Please take a look at our Covid-19 Operating Procedures

Paddlesports are an excellent way to make new friends while enjoying being outdoors. Not to mention the great health benefits of improved cardiovascular fitness, increased muscle strength, particularly in the back, arms, shoulders and chest, from moving the paddle, and increased torso and leg strength [the strength to power a canoe or kayak comes mainly from rotating the torso and applying pressure with your legs].
