Start Rowing at the Union
You’ve rowed elsewhere before? Then welcome to the Trent, one of the best rivers for rowing in the country! Joining the Nottingham & Union rowing club will give you access to excellent facilities and boats, and also access to top level coaching. All with an extremely reasonable membership fee. See our contacts page, and either phone us or e-mail us to get in touch.
You are absolutely new to rowing and sculling? Rowing is a great sport to learn! You’ve probably seen the GB squad winning gold medals on the television, or maybe you’ve just seen rowing boats on the river as you cross over Trent Bridge – either way it is easier to start rowing than you probably think. You train outdoors on a beautiful river, it is very good for improving fitness – and it is great fun. We suggest you read our Start Rowing Leaflet and then the first step is to contact us. We will arrange a starter session for you to come and have a look around the club and then you will take your first steps in learning to row on our rowing machines and using our indoor rowing tank. After just a few sessions you will be out in a boat on the river! Don’t wait until next summer to start rowing – rowing is an all-year-round sport. We get out training on the river as often as we can in the winter months – and there is often much more time to learn the sport as there is more time in between races.
