Learn to Row with Twickenham Rowing Club

Club logo

Inspired by the coxless four or the lightweight pair in the rowing regatta at the Beijing Olympics?  Want a taste of glory on the water yourself? 

Twickenham Rowing Club is giving any budding Steve Redgraves or Katherine Graingers that chance. The second phase of the annual adult Learn to Row course commences on Saturday 27th September and participants on that course can expect to be racing in their first race just three months after their first outing! 

If you currently play another sport to a high standard, you’re tall or you’re generally into fitness – why not give rowing a try?  And those of you who aren’t tall shouldn’t be put off – rowers come in all shapes and sizes!  Coxes are always in high demand and are an integral part of any crew, so if you fancy giving coxing a go, join this second phase Learn to Row course.

Opening evenings for this course will be held on Wednesday 3rd, Tuesday 9th and Wednesday 17th September at the boathouse situated on Eel Pie Island, Twickenham.  The course lasts 4 weeks, ending in a fun regatta, and costs just £70 per person.  This includes use of all club facilities, equipment, insurance and coaching.

Last year’s Learn to Row squad went on to get rowing points and win many pots in the process at various head races and regattas just months after first picking up an oar.  Many of the previous ‘Learn to Rowers’ have also gone on to compete in the pinnacle of rowing events, and participants in this second phase course can expect to be in the qualifiers for the Henley Royal Regatta in summer 2010.

Please get in touch with Corin Margetson on 07976 702840 or [email protected] for more details, or to book yourself onto one of the open evenings.
