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.

Acer Nethercott

Posted by Amanda Jones | February 23, 2013

The club was saddened to hear of the death of Acer Nethercott on Jan 26th. He had been ill for some time.

Acer lived in Harlow and attended Broxbourne school so he had his first experience of coxing at this club as a teenager.
He was academically gifted and went to Oxford University ultimately attaining a PhD in Philosophy. At Oxford he coxed four Boat Races and was cox of the GB Eight for the Beijing Olympiad ending with a Silver medal at the Olympic Games. He retained an interest in BRC having assisted at the ceremonies when the Boat House was opened.

His Mother may be sustained by the respect and high esteem in which Acer was held and the love of those who knew him.

Learn to Row at Broxbourne, 2013

Posted by Chris Moody | February 13, 2013

We plan to run a rowing course for complete beginners starting on Saturday the 2nd and Sunday the 3rd of March.

The course will run from 9.30 to about 12.00 on Saturday and Sunday mornings. You will learn much faster if you can practice on both days. The course will last for 3 months.

At the end of the 3 months, if you want to progress to racing, we will continue to coach you, but we will expect time and training commitments from you.

If you are interested in doing our introduction to rowing we would like you to come to the club on Saturday the 16th or Sunday the 24th at 10.00. Ask for Hugo, Leslie or me and we will show you round the club and talk a bit about rowing. If you decide to do the course we will give you a couple of forms to fill in and tell you how much the course will cost.

The club is on Old Nazeing Road, near to The Crown pub. EN10 6QU
