We are keen to teach every adult who is interested in rowing at Kingston. We welcome all ages, male and female, and all levels of interest, from serious athletes who wish to row competitively, to those who simply want to enjoy the pleasures of rowing along our beautiful stretch of the river.
To get people safely on the water, the club has invested in a training sculling boat and two sets of pontoons for giving some additional stability to learning to row in singles. We also have two stable quads that we use for our Learn to Row courses.
Here’s what a few recent people said about the courses:
‘It helps me to escape the stresses and strains of life and keeps me fit’
‘For me a gentle paddle is all I need. Fresh air, fun and new friends, what’s not to like?’
‘It’s been hard at times but it’s also been great fun and I’ve met a great bunch of people’
‘Forget doing crosswords, yoga and dog walking to keep Alzheimers at bay, learning to row will do it all for you’
Please note that squad vacancies are currently very limited as the club is at high capacity and there is no automatic progression to the club development squads upon completion of these courses. Where possible we do try to accommodate those who are interested in joining, where we have particular gaps within the squads.
