Welcome to Hickling Windsurfing Club

The premier windsurfing location on the Norfolk Broads, East Anglia, UK. A beautiful relatively safe location, close to the North Sea coast, great winds, beginner loan equipment, excellent facilities, and a warm welcome. 

The sport of Windsurfing is great for personal fitness, and sailing along under your own power is the ultimate thrill. We can arrange limited coaching to new members to help learning and to get the most from the club. We occasionally have training days and public ‘come and try’ days too.

If you are interested in joining then e-mail There’s also further information on joining here.

AGM 26 November 2015


The East Anglian Tennis and Squash Club hosted the 2015 AGM.

We have had another very successful year at the Club: 2 Come and Try days, 2 training days, fun day and summer barbecue were all well attended and benefitted from good weather.  The committee members continued to promote the club at local events and through social media. Although membership renewals were down slightly compared to last year, new members continue to join, well into November, and it was decided to freeze fees for 2016 as the club was in a healthy position.

The committee said good bye to John Christie, our long-serving Secretary, although we hope to still see him about as he has been granted free membership, along with John Tuddenham and Tony West, for the lifetime achievement awards. Wendy Harwood has taken over as Secretary and Mike Hudspith has joined the committee.
