The club welcomes everyone to row, regardless of age (or size). We welcome new members, whether you are coming back to rowing after a break or moving up from our Development Squad. For those who have never rowed before, you begin by joining one of our Learn to Row courses and will then progress into the Development Squad, before joining the main group.
The Women’s Squad train on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 6.00pm and Saturday mornings 7:45 am and 10.30am. You can attend as many or as few of these sessions as you wish, but if you plan to compete we recommend you attend training as often as possible.
For those wishing to compete there are great racing experiences for various abilities. These range from the Sunday League, which is a fun and friendly introduction to racing through the local regatta and head races all the way up to the National Championships. We race both sweep and sculling. Races have master’s events and different age groups can row against each other with a handicap system.
We recognise that not everyone wishes to compete and some just row for pleasure and to keep fit. On a Saturday 10.30am-12.30pm we offer a more recreational session. This allows those that do not wish to compete or are newer to rowing to develop their skill level and mix in boats with more experienced rowers.
Rowing is a great way to keep fit and a chance to meet new people in a fun and friendly atmosphere. If you are interested in joining our squad then please contact our Captain, Judy Dines, in the first instance and we can arrange for you to come down for a taster session and meet everyone.
