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.

Inter regional junior regatta & 9 junior wins at Lea

Posted by Amanda Jones | April 23, 2017

Well done Danny and Patrick who represented the Eastern region in the Inter regional junior regatta in the Junior J14 2x. They had a great (but long) day out representing the region and did themselves proud. 

Lea regatta on Sunday 14 crews raced and 9 of them won, what a fantastic day. You all raced really well, for some it was a stressful time, racing side by side for the first time, for others it was a first (long awaited) win. 

We are really proud of the performances yesterday. Well done to you all.
