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.

Thank you very much to Chris Lawn for organising and all the volunteers and competitors for making our Splash n Dash on Saturday evening such a wonderful event.  The glorious weather obviously helped and even encouraged a few people to go for a swim; everyone enjoyed the amazing food thank you to the junior parents.  Special thank you to the London Otters for bringing so many keen rowers and great to see ex-junior Harry.  Alex took some great photos (to follow).

Well done to Holly Hodges for qualifying in the Junior single sculls (The Di Ellis Trophy) at Henley Women’s Regatta through the time trial, unfortunately she came up against the eventual winner in the first round.  She does have a great commemorative all-in-one with the BRC blade in pride of place.
