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.

It’s Peterborough Summer time again

Posted by Angela Watling | August 13, 2010

It’s that time of year again – this weekend is Peterborough Summer regatta! This is the last big regatta being attended this season and we have a good number of entries yet again, with races happening throughout the day. The draws for both Saturday and Sunday can be found on the Peterborough City Rowing Club website. So, if you find yourself wondering what to do tomorrow or Sunday, come along and support everyone!

Fairy Lights

Posted by Penny Scorah | August 9, 2010

If anyone has any fairy lights they would like to either donate or lend to the club for the dinner dance (Sat 9th Oct) please let me know. Preferably looking for white/blue lights but coloured will also be fine.

Email me at social@broxbournerowingclub.org or come and chat to me at the club if you can help out.

Also – Thanks for everyone that came to the summer social yesterday. It was a great success which probably had a lot to do with the beautiful sunshine and not much to do with the flying ants ;o) Big thanks to Phil and Jo for manning the bar and the senior men for the awesome BBQ!
