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.

Trent Head

Posted by Graham Everitt | February 29, 2012

The eights racing season has begun frustratingly late for Broxbourne’s men’s squad this year, with the cancellation of both Peterborough Head and Bedford Eights & Fours meaning legs weren’t tested until what is usually the mid-season marker race on the Trent in Nottingham.

The first race was in the just-formed eight. With Rob Alexander and Chris Heathcote returning to the Senior Men’s squad after sojourning to the Masters squad for a few years, the crew had a more heavyweight look to it than it has had in recent years when populated by lightweights. With only a few outings under their belts the crew made the most of the warm up with a few good bursts, and then span on the marshall’s call ready to find out how they stood up to the opposition. The row was a robust start to the HORR campaign, with the 6k course acting as a good test of legs and lungs. The crew placed 8th overall and second in their category just a few seconds behind the winning crew.
In the third division the HOR4s club record holding quad took to the water again, ready to race strong opposition from Trent and Nottingham University. Another strong row saw them win their division with a time that was the fastest of the division and which placed them 11th fastest boat of the day overall. An IM2 coxed four containing Chris’ Sheppard, Turnbull and Heathcote and the contrasting sinewy Robin Mould also performed well with a 3rd place in category, 15 seconds off of an impressively drilled winning boat from Nottingham University.
After a long day of driving and racing the crew returned to the club pleased with the results. With some good scalps of other provincial crews and the feeling of plenty of speed yet to come in the eight, the squad now looks forward to racing at Kingston and on the Tideway in the coming weeks.
