About Us

British Rowing is the governing body for the sport of rowing (both indoor rowing and rowing on water). We are committed to ensuring that the sport continues to thrive from the grassroots right up to winning medals at the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

We are responsible for participation and the development of rowing and indoor rowing in England and for the training and selection of individual rowers and crews representing Great Britain.

The development and support of rowing in England is managed through six rowing areas, which cover all the counties in England. To see which region your club belongs to then look at the tables below.

For any area support then please get in touch with your Area Participation Manager, details of which can be found on our ‘Contact Us’ page
