Bartley SUP Birthday Bash
Published 12:43 on 19 Jul 2021
The Bartley SUP team were out in force on Sunday paddling around the reservoir in the sunshine and even playing a bit of paddle water polo!
SUP is one of the most accessible ways to get on the water at Bartley and is the fastest growth area for the club by far. The club was started with a few enthusiasts under the leadership of Ben Julian and has grown rapidly to the success story we see today.
Ben and team have worked on a volunteer basis throughout both administering membership and providing training (whilst also boosting club funds) up to a point where it was almost taking over his life! Thankfully the new website can now relieve him of some of the administration burden and the training is running through Andrew Simpson Foundation due to the increased demand, (although Ben and team are still very much in demand and command of the biggest SUP club in the Midlands).
Sailing members are allowed to SUP as part of their membership however, you will need to book onto an induction course first so you know the safety requirements and the SUP team are confident in your ability to comply with these. Reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to know more.
Happy Birthday Bartley SUP and a huge thanks to Ben Julian and team for all the 'free of charge' hours they have contributed over the years to making it the success we see today!
