Learn to Row courses - summer 2022 - taking names suspended

We have had a large numbers of expressions of interested in participating in the 2022 courses. We are currently getting back to those on our books to confirm that they are still interested. Whilst we stake stock we are suspending taking any more names so that we do not raise false hopes about getting on a course.

This is as at 1 May 2022. Look back here in a couple of weeks to see if we are reopening the window. You can still email with any general questions -

What we did in 2021

Note that the dates and format may be different in 2022. More news on this by mid May 2022

In 2021 the courses consisted of one session a week for six weeks, either on a Wednesday evening or a Sunday morning. This was done twice, so four courses in all. 
Each session was about two hours long, maybe a bit longer. Full dates were:

Wed 30 Jun - Wed 4 Aug 21 6.00-8.30pm  &  Sun 4 Jul - Sun 8 Aug 21 11.00am-1.30pm
Wed 11 Aug - Wed 15 Sep 21 6.00-8.30pm  &  Sun 15 Aug - Sun 19 Sep 21 8.00-10.30am 

The cost was £100 for the six weeks, including a rowing handbook and free membership of the club up to the end of October (when those who wanted to carry on rowing regrouped in the new Novice Squad). There was reduced fee of £80 for the unwaged. There were no hidden charges, e.g. for equipment hire, these were all-in prices.

Daytime community rowing - Wednesday mornings

If you are free during the day on a Wednesday from 9.30-12.00 our less formal daytime rowing sessions could be for you. It is currently £5.00 a session or you can take out monthly off-peak membership by standing order for £16.

If you are interested in the Wednesday morning sessons, then please email Colin Percy at We can usually take both beginners and experienced rowers at any time, but please check first as to when you should come down.
