LEARN TO ROW

OVERVIEW

We don't like to brag... but we do put on one hell of a Learn to Row course. You'll be part of a six week intensive learning curve; from never picking up a blade, to racing down the Thames in our annual end of course finale. You'll be introduced to our club through the course with access to our Club Night, Circuits classes, newly refurbished gym and great social scene... did we mention we have a bar for those post weekend sessions?

We've seen 1,000s of people come through our doors who have taken a love to our sport and we're looking for our next intake in September coming. So if you're interested in being part of something really exciting, with hard work, a new found level of fitness and a huge group of new friends, then sign up now.

WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR

We find that sporting history is very useful on our course as you will be familiar with training and team morale. However, if you're enthusiastic to try something new, up for a challenge and can work well with others, we'd love to hear from you. There's no 'i' in team here at Putney; team mentality is crucial to performing well together.

 

Ultimately we're looking for members who want to not just join our course, but stay on as part of our rowing family here at Putney. We're a community who trains hard and plays hard and has a social scene to rival every club on the Tideway, but you'll find that out soon enough, so pop along to our Open Days to see what we're about.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

"I moved to London and wanted to join a sport to meet people. Having never rowed before, the L2R course was a great introduction to rowing and the Club's social side.
3 years later and I can't imagine life without PTRC!"
