Inclusive Club Guide


There are many ways that rowing can benefit people’s lives, from teaching new skills to forming new friendships, as well as varied health and well-being benefits. The rowing community recognises these positive impacts and wants everyone to have the opportunity to enjoy them.

It was for this reason that being ‘open to all’ was identified as one of the sport’s key values by our rowing clubs and members when British Rowing’s Strategic Plan was published in 2015.

The British Rowing Inclusive Club Guide, which focuses on promoting inclusivity in its broadest sense, is designed to help rowing clubs become more inclusive. Developed in partnership with Sporting Equals and in consultation with the rowing community, it aims to:

  • Highlight the benefits of being inclusive.
  • Explain inclusivity and its importance in creating a diverse sport that is open to all.
  • Provide practical advice on creating an inclusive club.
