At the Pugneys Watersports Centre you can try your hand at a fantastic range of activities. Our stores are packed full with modern up to date equipment ready for you to have fun with.

From dinghy sailing and windsurfing to kayaking​ and powerboating for the adrenalin junkies, we offer a wide range of exciting activities.

To book or for enquiries contact us on 01924 302360 or email pugneyscp@wakefield.gov.uk

The Centre is inspected annually by the RYA (Royal Yachting Association), BCU (British Canoe Union) and AALS (Adventurous Activities Licensing Service) to make sure we meet their rigorous safety standards.

We provide all the specialist equipment you need and we check and maintain it all before you arrive to ensure you have a quality experience - all you need to bring along are old trainers, your swimwear and plenty of enthusiasm.

As well as the wide range of watersports there is plenty for the wildlife enthusiasts and explorers among you, and much more to do.
