Learn to Row – starting on the 15th of October 2017

Rowing on the river Avon

Bradford on Avon Rowing Club are holding a Learn to Row course from their boathouse on the river Avon opposite the Tithe Barn, starting on the 15th of October and lasting for 6 weeks.

The course is open to anyone over 18 and would suit absolute beginners as well as former rowers returning after a long gap. It is an excellent way to get some recreational activity without pounding the streets or treadmill.

We have members aged between 14 and 86. It is never too late to take up this most enjoyable sport.
