MIlton Keynes Rowing Club aims to promote & expand the sport of rowing for people of all ages and abilities in the local community. We strive to provide a platform for all adults to get back into sport and for young people to learn & develop new skills for the future. We provide various levels of membership to accommodate each individual's lifestyle and aspirations whether it's on a competitive, development or recreational level... and of course establishing a healthy local social environment.
Being the only rowing club in Milton Keynes and the surrounding areas, we have a large local community who can benefit from what a rowing club can offer, to both an individual and groups. Rowing is a fun & great way for adults to get back into sport, particularly through our 'Learn to Row' courses - offering adults and young people the chance to learn the basics before developing their new skill further & rowing for fun or competition, whilst at the same time becoming increasingly healthy & fit!
Our 'Learn to Row' course saw over 30 people learn the basics in 2011, of which over half have continued to develop their new skill & have now become full members.
