Glenn Campbell

Glenn has been a resident pro water skier at Tallington Lakes for many years; starting waterskiing at a very young age. He used to compete in all three disciplines: slalom, trick and jump but then became a specialist in slalom; which has served him well. He is one of the most well known and respected slalom water skiers in the world; not just in the UK.

Glenn has been involved with the development of water ski technology and design because of his in-depth knowledge of how things work on the water.

He is regularly seen carving up the course at Tallington Lakes, which is well worth a look!
