In partnership with BUCS (British Universities and Colleges Sport), British Rowing aims to support indoor rowing activity across the student participant network whether it be for fun, fitness or competition


Go Row Indoor Universities

We are aiming to:

  • Improve the student experience and raise the profile of indoor rowing through British Rowing’s Go Row Indoor programme
  • Roll-out a new university gym offer providing an exclusive support package of instructor training, Go Row Indoor class activity, guidance, marketing materials and support for activating indoor rowing in the gym environment
  • Increase the number of university rowing clubs to sign up to the Go Row Indoor Club initiative, helping to utilise existing club facilities to expand their rowing offer, connecting with the wider student community, generating new additional club revenue and helping get more people active through indoor rowing class activity
  • Implement new indoor rowing products, technology and training within one of the largest active fitness membership in the UK
  • Grow engagement in both the University Indoor and Adaptive Rowing Series (UIARS) and intra-mural indoor rowing competition

If would like to register your interest and find out more about how your university can get involved, please email us.

University Indoor and Adaptive Rowing Series

British Rowing and BUCS (British University and College Sport) work together to deliver a yearly University Indoor & Adaptive Rowing Series (UIARS). The series aim is to empower, encourage, and support University rowing clubs to take on the planning and organising of an indoor rowing event, enabling the formation of a national series of competitions delivering a fun and competitive indoor rowing experience for students and local community representatives across the UK.

Each event tries to be accessible as possible and encourages participation beyond the immediate student rowing club. Other audiences that have taken part include other sports clubs at each university, gym participants, local rowing clubs, and community groups. The series is a great opportunity to provide an event for all abilities and promote the sport of rowing. As well as a way to generate new income to support longer term ambitions.

Each year there is a dedicated UIARS page on the British Rowing website providing access to a leaderboard in each of the BUCS categories, as the series evolves.
