Learn to row

Newport Rowing Club is a great place to learn to row.

We have safe, calm, flat water (well, most of the time) to get you out on.

We can offer a free taster session with a 2 month follow on L2R... learn 2 row course (fees apply). This guarantees a minimum of 6 sessions run by qualified British Rowing coaches.  The courses are in small group of 6-8 people where you will learn the the basic rowing strokes and water safety.  You will progress from learning in a training scull to rowing in a crew boat (with 4 rowers).

The courses run through the summer months, as and when we have enough people interested to make the course viable. The current cost is £60.

Anyone from the age of 12 is welcome.  You do need a basic level of fitness and flexibility.  Rowing is a great way to get fitter and stronger. If you want to arrange a taster, ask a question, or find out more please contact Julie at chairman@newport-rowingclub.co.uk

After the L2R course you can decide if you want to carry on developing your rowing with us.  We have a development squad to help you become a proficient rower.
