As part of a National initiative ‘RowFest’ Our open day is Sunday 23rd August 1pm till 5pm, it’s for complete beginners to come down and have a look round, speak to people and have a go. It’s open to adults aged 18 and over. We will show you how to use the rowing machines and get you in the stable fours we use for our popular Pub & Club Regatta; and have a bit of fun by playing games and trying rowing. It’s a taster day run by our Learn to Row Coordinator Rachel James and if you enjoy your experience and want to learn how to do it properly then you can sign up to the learn to row course on the 19th/20th September – more information about this can be found on our rowing page.
The junior taster day is 25th August at 11.00am run by Jo Atkinson where the juniors will have a go at sculling rather than sweep oar which the adults will be doing.
If you are interested in coming along either just turn up or let me know by sending me an email – click here.
If you don’t fancy having a go but want to come and have a look around the club and see what we have to offer feel free to pop down for a drink instead. Bewdley Rowing Club is a social and very sociable club, so if you don’t fancy rowing, but still feel you can help, please turn up to our open day.
If you cant make that date but are interested in joining our last learn to row course of this year in September please contact me.
RowFest is to further capitalise on the interest shown in the sport after Great Britain’s success in the 2012 Olympics ahead of the 2016 Games in Rio. It is also to get more people interested in the sport and become members of local rowing clubs. More about RowFest can be found on the British Rowing website.
