Our recently graduated 2020 Learn to Row

We’re not going to engage in false modesty, we run a great Learn to Row course. Our intensive course will take you from complete beginning to racing in just a few weeks! We don’t just offer a grounding in rowing fundamentals, we can help you improve your fitness (in our newly refurbished gym!), and you’ll be introduced to our wider club through access to our great social scene.

Our course has been running since 2011 and has helped many people, of all ages and backgrounds in fitness, to learn how to row. Some of our graduates have even gone on to row at the higher level including at: Henley Royal Regatta, Henley Women’s Regatta and Head of River. So, if you’re interested in learning a new sport, becoming fitter and a meeting a huge group of new friends, sign up! Curlew’s Learn to Row course is consistently oversubscribed and always sells out, so sign up early!

Curlew’s Learn to Row will be returning in Summer 2021. Over the next year Curlew’s committee is committed to investing in building up the women’s side of the club, so we particularly encourage all sportswomen, and sportswomen in the making, to sign up. Our women’s squads have had great success in the past decade and this is an opportunity to be a part of something exciting.

A note on Covid-19 precautions: It would be remiss of us not to mention that the global pandemic has created some…challenges. We’re determined that so long as we are being safe, we will, in the best of British tradition, keep calm and carry on. Curlew is proud to have got our 2020 rowing novices to graduation, finding adaptations and workarounds which maintained the quality of training and experience, while not compromising on safety. We’ve learnt a lot and are confident that even though there are still doubtless bumps in the road to come while the world solves the coronavirus problem, we can get you rowing!

GDPR gubbins: Your contact details will be removed from the taster day/learn to row form after 1 year. We will not share your details outside of Curlew Rowing Club.
