Matt Blackwell

Matt is Head Coach at Wokingham Waterside Centre.

Following early days in racing, Matt has worked his way through the disciplines – and he’s now one of a very few coaches who are truly comfortable in anything from a high-kneeling sprint boat to a specialist WW canoe. He’s already a 5* trained and Moderate Water Endorsed UKCC L2 Canoe Coach.

Oh – and he’s 5* WW and MWE in k***k – and he’s an aspirant UKCC L3 WW K***k Coach!
