Club History

The club is situated on the river Devon close to Newark Town Centre and next to Newark Marina. Within 30 yards the Devon joins the river Trent giving twelve miles of excellent rowing water.

Newark is a friendly club that welcomes new members of all ages and abilities and anyone interested in taking up this fast growing and successful sport is encouraged to attend one of the club's 'taster' sessions before moving on to the Learn to Row course.

For the more experienced rower the club has a good racing record, successful at local regional and national level, it has qualified crews for Henley Royal Regatta during the past four seasons and competed at the National Championships.

The club has 'Clubmark' status and is accredited by the sports governing body, British Rowing to teach junior rowing to 11 - 18 year olds. It has a large junior section and good links with schools in both the Newark and Grantham areas.
