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.

Save the Date! Dinner Dance 9th October 2010

Posted by Penny Scorah | July 1, 2010

Saturday 9th October is the date for the Annual BRC Dinner & Dance.  It will be held at the new clubhouse. Details to follow in the coming months.

And out of the Thames…

Perhaps inevitable after drawing London RC ‘A’, but the VIII kept the pressure on the London crew all the way, in the end loosing by 2 1/4 lengths. A difficult day for the lads but we’re all proud. Getting 2 boats through to Henley is a great achievement and perhaps next year we might have some luck with the draw!

For those of you not racing at Henley…

Posted by Angela Watling | June 30, 2010

…don’t forget there are plenty of other regattas to go to! Coming up over the next few weeks we have: Bedford Quarts, Henley Veterans, the British Rowing Champs, St Neots, Sudbury International and the infamous Peterborough Summer. Check the calendar on the website for dates.

Entries for Henley Vets have closed and Bedford entries are due to me by today. However, entries can still be submitted for everything else! Speak to your VC if you want to race, or email me at entries@broxbournerowingclub.org. More information should be coming online about entres over the next few weeks.
