Water skiing is great exercise no matter what age you are. It truly is a family sport. It’s not unusual to have toddlers having their first tow in the same session as their parents and grandparents.

We have seasoned skiers well into their 70's and older regularly partaking. As a form of exercise there probably isn’t any other sport which offers such an investment in health for just 15 minutes, two or three times a week. For more information of the health benefits click here.

The Water Ski Academy is focused on providing a high-quality service and customer satisfaction - we will do everything we can to meet your expectations.
With a variety of offers to choose from, we're sure you'll be happy skiing with us. Look around our website and if you have any comments or questions please feel free to contact us either by telephone, email or in person (all relevant information can be found here ).

On the boarder of Lancashire and Yorkshire, just 20 minutes North of Manchester, we hope to see you "up at the Rez" soon! 

If you would like more information please visit or if you want to contact the academy please phone: 01706 852 151 or Email:
