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.

AGM Today at 11am

Posted by Rosie Sanderson | April 28, 2012

All club members should have received an email with information about today’s AGM. We are still looking for candidates for the following roles…

Management committee: All of the posts are up for election at the AGM, apart from the post of Captain. The current treasurer, Anne-Marie Bright does not wish to be nominated again due to pressure of work. The House and Grounds officer, Andy Kelly, would also be keen for someone to take over from him. The role of venue hire co-ordinator is also up for grabs as Penny cannot carry on the role. Venue hire co-ordinator is a co-opted role on the committee.

Please can all club members consider if they could do these important jobs, or if they know someone who could be persuaded to do so.

The main jobs of the Treasurer are as per the rules, in summary:

  • receipt and payment of all monies on behalf of the club
  • maintaining records of the accounts of the club
  • submitting a financial report and budget to the AGM

If you’re interested in taking over any of these roles please speak the current holders of the role and/or Russell for more information.
