Senior (18+) Taster Sessions are now fully booked!

Our 2017 Senior Taster Sessions  will run on the following dates:

  • Saturday 1st July 2017 10:30am (Full)
  • Saturday 15th July 2017 10:30am (Full)
  • Saturday 29th July 2017 10:30am (Full)
  • Saturday 5th August 2017 10:30am (Full)

The session will last approximately 90 minutes – 2 hours and will involve some technical work on the indoor rowing machines and a trip on the river with experienced rowers. Wear your usual gym kit but absolutely NO baggy clothes (they will get stuck in the seats in the boat and likely rip, baggy tops will also impede your rowing stroke).

There is no obligation to sign up for membership after your session! We’re not pushy, you can simply come along to try it out before making any decisions. Sign up early though, as we’re expecting to fill up fast!

Ensure you review the squad pages beforehand so you have some sort of idea on which squad you feel would suit you best and get an understanding of what would be expected if you joined, however, we will be giving you lots of information on the day and there will be time for any questions.

In the meantime, do contact a squad representative if you have any questions:

Carl Barker Men’s Captain –

Joss Rankin Women’s Captain –
