I Am Team GB

Bewdley Rowing Club is organising free Rowing Taster Sessions as part of the nation’s biggest sports day, I Am Team GB

It will be hosted on Saturday 27 August to get more people active in the local community and celebrate Team GB’s achievements at the Rio 2016 Games.

The event is part of I Am Team GB – a nationwide campaign that has inspired thousands of UK clubs to open their doors to new participants. This campaign is brought to you by ITV and The National Lottery, working with the British Olympic Association, UK Sport and supported by Join In, to inspire the Great British public to take part in sport.

What’s more, many of the nation’s Olympians, fresh from the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, will be attending events across the nation to give people the opportunity to stand shoulder to shoulder with Team GB.

Bewdley Rowing Club is proud to fly the I Am Team GB flag in the Worcestershire area. If you have been inspired by the Olympics to try rowing, we are holding a FREE taster afternoon on Saturday 27th August as part of the I am Team GB initiative.

It will be running from approx 2pm-5pm for your chance to come down have a go and see if it really is as easy as Team GB make it look!

The session will be about 20min long, if you are interested in coming down, please get in touch kat@bewdleyrc.co.uk and let us know how many will be coming and at what time. So we have an idea of numbers.

Rowing is a great way of keeping fit and is an all-round body work out; it isn’t an impact sport so people of all ages can take part.. If you are under 18 and want to have a go please get in touch as there will be something separate for juniors.

“We are so pleased to put on this event and give people the chance to have a go at rowing and be part of I Am Team GB,” said Kat Carlyle Captain Bewdley Rowing Club “Sport brings communities closer together and we are immensely proud at Bewdley Rowing Club to be part of this nationwide celebration of sport.”
