Learn to Row & Summer Camps

Are you new to rowing?

Or maybe rowed at school and would like to learn to scull. 

HRC’s Learn to Row courses are a great way to have fun, get fit and make new friends on a stunning stretch of the River Thames that is home to the Henley Royal Regatta.


Henley Rowing Club offers both ‘learn to row’ courses and private tuition aimed at adults and juniors who have never rowed before and would like to give it a go. The courses are run by experienced oars people and cover many different aspects of rowing including gym work, rowing on the water, using rowing machines and learning how to handle boats and rowing equipment.
