Senior (18+) Men’s and Women’s Squads

If you’re completely new to rowing then your next step is to attend one of our taster sessions held around July and August each year. This session involves a short introduction to the indoor rower and a trip on the river in an 8+ with some experienced volunteers. Our 2017 Taster session are complete and our season is now underway! We will reopen taster sessions again in Summer 2018, check back here for more information around June/July 2018. If you consider yourself fit and conditioned enough to join a competitive group already, contact one of our squad Captain’s for more information, we may be able to fit you in!
