Devil's Elbow Rowing Club
Join us on one of our club sessions, find out about our Learn to Row courses or just give it a go! Meet new friends, build fitness and stamina, see wildlife, enjoy the scenery & be part of our amazing team.
Since the club's foundation in 2011, we have grown to 50+ active members. All ages and abilities of experienced rowers, potential rowers and coxswains are welcome. Our members currently range from 11 years old to 64 years young. We currently run Men's, Women's and Junior Squads, and are developing quickly with the aim of eventually taking crews to Henley, Master's Championships, National Schools. In 2013 our crews entered WeHoRR and HoRR for the first time. We recorded a series of race wins during 2014 and 2015 and hope to build on that with even more great performances this year.
