Learn to Row

We have run our Learn2Row courses for over 15 years and have taught hundreds of people to row on a beautiful stretch of the Thames.

Our Autumn Learn to Row course will start on Saturday 5 October and end  on Saturday 26 October.  The course is held at our site in Lower Basildon from 9.30am to 12.30pm each Saturday morning and from 7.30pm to 8.30pm on each Wednesday evening at the rowing tank in Radley College.

The autumn course is now fully subscribed.  Our next course will be in April 2020.  Dates will be published here later this year.

To see how easy and fun rowing can be, look at these videos of our Learn to Row class of October 2018.  Over the six sessions we’ll teach you the British Rowing technique rowing and will have you rowing as a crew by the end of the course. We spend time at each session learning some of the theory and then putting it into practice on the water.

British Rowing certified coaches run the course supported by a band of friendly club volunteers. The course is open to adults only. We have a limit of 12 people. The costs is £130 per person.  (This does not include club membership which is £100 per year, and is only needed if you decide to stay rowing with the club.)
