Well done Matt Stallard who was presented a Lifetime Recognition award by Annamarie Phelps (Chairman British Rowing) at the British Rowing conference, Broxbourne Rowing Club are very proud
Welcome to the Broxbourne Rowing Club website! We are friendly rowing club with a fine fleet of boats, a fully equipped gym, and a modern, spacious club house with a bar. We row pretty much undisturbed on a delightful stretch of the river Lea. We compete vigorously and successfully in local and national races and welcome all including senior, masters, beginners, juniors and recreational rowers.
If you haven't rowed before, the sport provides full-body outdoor fitness, stimulates your senses and challenges you physically. There are few things as exhilarating as rowing at full pressure in a well synchronised crew. We run regular Learn to Row courses for juniors and adults to set you on your way.
If you are a more experienced rower, you will find a racing crew to meet your aspirations, whether you want to compete at Henley, in the masters world championships, or national and provincial races. Some prefer to enjoy recreational rowing and our touring boats travel far and wide on long weekends away, or compete in pageant-spectaculars like the Great River Race.
We also welcome aspiring and experienced coaches and coxes. These vital members of the club have the opportunity to make a real difference to the crew. Inexperienced or new coxes will receive support, training and coaching and are unlikely to be short of crews to practice with!If you are interested please get in touch with the club.
The course will run from 9:30 to about 12:00 both Saturday and Sunday mornings for 8 weekends, you will learn much faster if you can attend on both days, but this is not required. The course will be for adults (18 and over). You must be able to swim. Please wear warm but flexible clothes e.g. tracksuit.
The cost of the course will be £130, or £85 if you are under 24 you can book onto the course and pay using the below links
Please read the additional information about rowing and our beginners course
We are please to welcome everyone adults and juniors 12 and over to have a go at rowing for free on our open day. If you want to try rowing, please register using the below link and come along for 10:00am. We are Broxbourne Rowing club at Old Nazeing Road EN10 6QU just over the river from the Boat Centre and past the Crown pub. Please wear something comfortable and that you can move in such as tracksuit. You must be a competent swimmer.
If you decide you want to continue we have an adult learn to row course starting 10 Oct but we do not currently have a junior learn to row course planned.

Well done to Tony Stokes who won two gold medals for Broxbourne in a composite H4+ against Kent Mitchell USA on Saturday and on Friday rowing in an UTRC Composite H8 when they beat Breda of Holland. Heading to the World Masters in Hazelwinkle in September.
Several other crews raced all went out to the winners
– men’s coxless four who went out to Quintin
and three women’s crews which I think is a first!
– WE quad lost in the final to a composite, after a race in which they lead Tideway Scullers who steered into them just before the finish
– WD8 lost to UTRC
– WC double lost to a composite (second year running we went out in the first race in the fastest heat i.e. tough draw again)
