Adult Learn to Row courses

Are you looking for a new challenge?

Rowing is an exciting and fun sport that can help you to get fit quickly, learn a new team sport, build your confidence and help you meet new people. Our Learn to Row courses for beginners will get you started with the basics of the sport and get you out on the water. Where you take it from there depends on how far you want to push yourself. There are follow on courses and various pathways to our various squads, ranging from recreational to competitive at the highest level.

Courses start in June each year run throughout the summer. Join our mailing list to be the first to find out!


Courses run throughout the summer and last around four weeks.


All sessions are led by a qualified coach, with support from experienced club members.


We use stable boats, suitable for beginners of all ages and fitness levels.
