NEW TO ROWING?
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 rowers/coaches and cover many different aspects of rowing including gym work, indoor rowing technique as preparation for rowing on the water, learning how to handle boats and rowing equipment carefully.
