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.

Our latest:

Circuits and Pizza tomorrow night!

Posted by Penny Scorah | October 18, 2010

7pm – Warm up (run/erg) 7.30pm – Circuits starts! Open to all club members and caters for all levels of fitness. Afterward I’ll open up the bar and put some pizzas in the oven. So bring along pizza or money and hopefully there will be enough to go around. A few helpers in the kitchen so I can man the bar would be really helpful. Look forward to seeing lots of you there!

Zac Purchase Raffle (well his toaster anyway)

Posted by Penny Scorah | September 24, 2010

Neil has acquired an amazing toaster signed by the one and only Zac Purchase. In Neil’s words:

“Behold the majesty of the Zac Purchase “Happy Toasting” signed Kenwood Toaster.
I think you will all agree this is a prize that we have not seen the like of before at the BRC annual dinner. I hear you all, simply the stuff of legend and folklaw!
This is just a teaser photo, but relax as the “the ZP toaster” will come among you all on the evening of the 9th of October.”

Even more reason to attend the event of the decade. ;o) It will be auctioned on the night.

Two weeks left until the Dinner Dance.
