Holme Pierpont is Englands National Watersports centre based on the River Trent just outside of the Midlands city of Nottingham. It is also the home of the British Canoe Union (BCU) headquarters and many of the UK's top slalom paddlers.

Hpp is a man made course that essentially diverts water from the main river down a concrete ditch.

The course is some 800 metres long and has a number of playable features. Up until quite recently the nature of the features has been dependent on the gradient of the trench and the amount of water flowing down. But over the course of the Summer (2002) bolt-on features have been added to the course at the looping pool to create a much more playable wave. The system being used is very similar to that being used at the Teesside ww course since its creation. Subsequent tweaks on the course are being made in preparation for the Euro Championships, by Pete Astles and others. - National Watersports Centre (HPP)
