Bartley SUP is a fully inclusive and a not-for-profit club. As a member you will have access to the private waters of Bartley reservoir for stand-up paddle boarding activities. You can paddle with us during our club sessions on fully insured and licensed club boards, or you can use your own equipment.
In addition to this, you will be invited to additional organised club activities such as: surf weekends; adventure paddles; polo sessions; additional training sessions; social events; and many more events that take place all across the country.
Becoming a member is a great way to keep fit and active, meet like-minded people, make new friends and have loads of fun.

How to become a Bartley SUP member?
For safety reasons, paddlers must follow the club membership guidance notes and meet the 'club paddler standard' before they are able to become a member.
To be self-sufficient when out on the water, you should be able to:
  • Paddle in a straight line for 100 metres
  • Turn the board 360 degrees in both directions while stationary using two different techniques
  • Turn the board whilst moving
  • Increase and decrease paddle strength and cadence over 100 metres
  • Paddle upwind, downwind and crosswind in a light breeze.
  • Self-rescue
If you want to join Bartley SUP but have no previous experience, book yourself onto one of our Intro/Improver Courses. This will help you to become competent at Stand Up Paddle Boarding to meet the level of ‘Club Paddler Standard’.

If you feel you already meet the criteria of a ‘Club Paddler’, check out the guidance notes below and use the "Become a member button" to start the process. Before you become a member we will need to organise an Induction for you.
