The Caravan and Motorhome Club has been named as an official partner for the 2023 ICF Canoe Slalom World Championships, taking place at Lee Valley White Water Centre this September.
In a world first for the International Canoe Federation (ICF), these World Championships will see a bespoke pop-up campsite built on venue at the adjacent Showground for visitors and paddling fans to take advantage of, meaning they will be a stone’s throw away from the live action as all nations compete for the coveted world titles and Paris 2024 Olympic boat quota spots.
The pop-up campsite will cater for motorhomes, caravans, campervans as well as tents, and will have all the usual high-end facilities as to be expected of a Caravan and Motorhome Club site, with showers, toilets, fresh water and waste disposal, electric hook up and a warm welcome.
The campsite will be the perfect base for spectators, plus, central London is just 30 minutes away by train and easily accessible from Waltham Cross station, just a 15 minute walk from the campsite.
Hosted at the London 2012 Olympic Venue, the 2023 ICF Canoe Slalom World Championships will see around 300 of the world’s top athletes head to the Lee Valley White Water Centre to battle it out across a week of high-octane competition at one of the best venues in the world.
With individual and team events in the men’s and women’s kayak and canoe events, as well as the brand-new Olympic sport of kayak cross making its debut at Paris 2024, there will be something for everyone to enjoy every day across the six-day event in September.
The partnership to the upcoming World Championships extends British Canoeing’s relationship with the Caravan and Motorhome Club, having announced the Club as the Accommodation Partner in 2021, offering members with access to some of the best touring sites available in the UK and Europe.
Brian Morgan, head of events and communications at the Caravan and Motorhome Club, said: “Our pop-up campsites are hugely popular and we’re excited to be creating a pop-up campsite at a major global sporting event. We couldn’t be more pleased to be supporting the ICF and extending our relationship with British Canoeing.
“As Europe’s largest touring Club, we can also add a great travel offer on channel crossings for all competitors, families and spectators staying on the pop-up campsite from continental Europe.”
The 2023 ICF Canoe Slalom World Championships is coming to the UK at the iconic Lee Valley White Water Centre from 19-24 September 2023, and tickets are now on sale.
