Welcome to Leeds Rowing Club
We are an ambitious and increasingly successful rowing club, with a friendly membership. We train at two facilities in the city: Waterloo Lake at Roundhay Park, in North Leeds and the Aire and Calder Navigation Canal at Stourton, South Leeds.
In September 2014, a new £1m boathouse in South Leeds was opened, which has been funded by ourselves, the University of Leeds, British Rowing, Sport England and WREN. The new facility will allow us to offer an even better rowing experience and increase membership. From September 2014, rowing will take place from Roundhay and our new facility in Stourton.
We welcome new members. For complete beginners, we run several Learn to Row courses during the year. For experienced rowers, we have a network of expanding squads.
The club opened its doors to new members in May 2006 and since this time we have rapidly grown to a membership of more than 100. We are a young club which is blessed with great equipment and has a wealth of experience to draw on from a number of very experienced coaches and rowers.
Please enjoy the website and get in contact if you have any enquiries.
