Rowing is one of Britain’s most successful Olympic sports, and the only GB sport to have won gold at every Olympiad since 1984.

Founded in 1839 in Henley on Thames, the spiritual home of rowing, we are one of Britain’s oldest rowing clubs and proud to be the starting point of many successful years of rowing for our athletes. The team building characteristics and hard-working ethos which we develop, has enabled many of our junior athletes to go on to have successful careers as well as significant rowing achievements, representing their universities and GB at the highest levels.

Whatever level your team works at in your organisation we can provide a fruitful and relevant experience using rowing as a means to focus on your performance as a unit involving:

Rowing with experienced oarsmen/women who also come from the corporate world and understand the challenges and constraints

Experiencing the impact of rowing together and operating as one unit rather than a group of separate individuals

Receiving pre and post feedback and be involved in focused discussion drawing parallels between the experience together on the water and those back in the work place.

We can offer a unique rowing and team building experience close to the famous Henley Royal Regatta course. 

We can accommodate groups from 6 to 28 people and with our experienced team we are able to design your event to suit your needs. Simply get in contact with us and we will be happy to help.

Roy Williams, CEO

“Our day at Henley Rowing Club was a fantastic event, superbly hosted by Hazel and supported by the club’s team and members.  The rowing was expertly managed and a great experience for the whole team and formed an instrumental part of our High Performing Team development day.  The Vendigital leadership team thoroughly enjoyed the rowing and hospitality provided and wanted to express our thanks for a great day."
