Learn To Row

Have you been inspired by many of our famous names in rowing?
Do you want to race at Henley or compete in local races?
Are you looking for a sport that is fantastic for a full body workout?
Or do you wish to do social recreational rowing?

Well, you have come to the right place, Newark Rowing Club is on an excellent stretch of the River Trent and we have a very good fleet of boats to suit all abilities. We are offering both taster days and structured Learn To Row Courses.

Why Learn To Row?

Rowing is a team sport for men and women of all ages.
It is a non-impact sport and great for strength and stamina.
Our courses are mixed and open to anyone over 18 years old.

How does the course work?

Each one consists of a small group with coaches ensuring you get an all round knowledge of the skills required. You will also be shown how to handle the boats on and off the water and river safety.

Courses run for 6 weeks with 2hr sessions, usually on a Sunday morning.
The cost of the course is £86

Taster Sessions

We also offer taster sessions, which are informal morning sessions lasting a couple of hours (10am to Midday). These give you the chance to have a look around our fantastic facilities, try out a rowing machine and maybe get on the water in one of our stable training boats.
