New to Rowing - want to give it go?


Christchurch Rowing Club offers learn to row courses for those who have never rowed before and would like to give it a go. This course is compulsory to all new potential rowers. For further details please visit the 'Learn to Row' page.

Rowing is a sport with safety and equipment considerations which limit the number of members we can safely manage.  Some areas of our club are in high demand, plus there is an annual flow to the sport which informs when the most appropriate times are to introduce new members to the sport / club.  So please do not think we have forgotten about you if a few months go by before you hear from us about up coming courses. 


Joining our club - This section is only to be completed once a membership offer has been made by a club captain or coach

All our coaches volunteer their time and expertise freely, therefore we expect all our members to show due consideration and commitment to the sport. Our fees are kept low as we encourage you to become more involved with the club, volunteering time and skills to help maintain the sense of community and to help all members achieve the most they possibly can within the sport. If you have any questions regards this please contact Jenny Gould on 01202 484964 or at

Before becoming a member we ask you to read the Club Rules and Code of Conduct and other important documents listed below.
