Punting

Punting is a traditional Thames summer sport supported by our club. Dittons racing punts are flat bottomed, square ended craft, moved with a pole against the river bed and raced as both singles and doubles.

It is a challenging combination of skiers’ balance with velodrome competition and tactics. Punts are enormous fun to race and to watch. We race under Thames Punting Club rules with a handicap system allowing close, exciting racing between beginners and elites.

Coaching and encouragement is available all summer long from club members.
