Developing Club Facilities

We advise that any club considering any sort of development should talk to their British Rowing Area Participation Manager as early as possible in the planning stage.

They will be able to talk you through the first steps and put you in touch with our Facilities experts who can provide specialist support and guidance.

For information on funding that is available, please see the Funding Sources page.

Sport England has good advice on facilities development for sports clubs. The Design and Cost Guidance may be particularly useful for information on issues such as planning a new clubhouse, making buildings accessible and calculating running costs.
