If you’d like to join one of these courses, please contact the club directly. Courses are run by clubs and not British Rowing, so we are unable to answer any questions about them.

This list is not exhaustive. If you can’t see a course near you, google “learn to row course near me” for other options.

Most clubs charge a fee for Learn to Row courses.
