Union Paddlers powered by Sports Camps

Union Paddlers is a story of growth and expansion in the world of paddlesports. It all started with the establishment of Sports Camps back in 2015, where Sports Camps organized the first training camp for canoe and kayak teams.

From canoe sprint to SUP

Over the years, we ventured into more paddlesport disciplines and provided services to more than 15 Olympic teams and clubs annually. In season 2022, we organized the first SUP Training Camp in Turkey, Antalya, marking the beginning of our journey in the SUP chapter.

Company mission

Created by paddlers for paddlers.

Union Paddlers

Aloha paddlers!

We, the Union Paddlers, are a team of three Olympians in Canoe Sprint, including an Olympic Champion and World and European champions in canoe and SUP. Our team was created by paddlers, for paddlers, and we have over 8 years of experience in team management, logistics, and organizing training camps across Europe through Sports Camps.

Through our experience in the paddling world, we know firsthand the main points that prevent paddlers from performing at their best. We’ve participated in major SUP events in 2022 and exchanged opinions with the community. Based on communication with riders, we all agree that the availability of Race SUP equipment for rent is a key issue, so we offer rental and logistics services for Race SUP equipment at major ICF and The Euro Tour Sup events. We also offer joint training groups with top riders and clinics before events to help improve performance.

We are fans of the SUP community and want to contribute to its development. With your input and our experience, we believe that everyone can benefit from progression.

We want you to “Travel light”. Our premium racing boards are available for rent starting from one day to the entire event. We also offer carbon paddles for rent to make traveling more geographically accessible. We can transport your board to events listed on our calendar. Check the “Events” section on our website to see where we’ll be present and which boards are available. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us personally.

At UP Platform, we have been running training camps for 8 years with Olympic teams, and we propose creating a platform where motivated riders, groups, or SUP clubs can join training camps with World Champions and Top Riders in locations with infrastructure, race boards, and paddles to improve their own skills and performance. We also offer tools to organize your own clinic or training camp. Our camp sites are located in Turkey, Bulgaria, Greece, Albania, Italy, Portugal, and Morocco.

Stay updated on our news for upcoming events, and we are always open to partnership opportunities. See you at the start area!

Best regards.
