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, showcasing a great opportunity to provide an indoor rowing event for all abilities and promote how accessible the sport of rowing is to participate in.
