Visitors are more than welcome to ski at Ellingham Lake, A tow will give you 10 minutes on the water, (free skiing or wakeboarding) or 6 passes through the slalom course. Skis, wakeboards, wetsuits and buoyancy jackets to suit all ages and sizes (well nearly!) are available for loan, this is included in the above price.
Beginners are welcome and they will be given basic tuition by a qualified British Water Ski & Wakeboard Instructor. The Ski boat can be fitted with a training bar which is ideal for learning. Tuition on dry ground is also available if required.
You can book in advance by phone +44 (0) 7487 673464, or just turn up and take your chance on availability.
If the club is busy you may leave the club rather than wait and then return if you wish prior to your go, however if you are not back in time then unfortunately you will forfeit your turn.
Please be ready on the jetty ready to ski when your turn comes up. Typically allow five skiers per hour as a rule of thumb. If you are not ready you may miss your go.
It is important that you sign the visitors’ indemnity sheet (on the jetty) prior to your go at the same time as paying for your ski. Make sure you are ready and prepared. If you are not sure about anything ask for Chris, the Manager, or any member of the Committee who will be pleased to assist.
On finishing your ski, please hang out to dry any borrowed equipment. You are welcome to use the shower as well as the barbeque.
Drinks and ice creams are normally available in the club house and are purchased through Chris or one of the committee.
