Ever wanted to Learn to Row? We run a Learn to Row course for adults every year at the start of our season, to offer a taster of our sport and to provide opportunities to join our club.
Why learn to row?
Rowing is a great team sport for men and women of all ages. It is an ourdoor sport that offers a full body work out and no expensive equipment is required. A desire to learn a new challenge and a willingness to be outside in a little rain is all that is required!
- Our club rows on one of the longest and calmest stretches of the Thames between Hampton Court and Teddington Lock, with some beautiful scenery.
- We have a history of notable International Representation.
- We have boats specifically tailored to beginners.
- A team of experienced coaches and rowers will lead the course.
KRC men competed at the British National Rowing Championships at Holme Pierrepoint Nottingham on the weekend of October 22/23. We entered in a new 'Club Shield' category for 4- and 8.
