Join Us

Avon County are always happy to welcome existing coxes, rowers, scullers and coaches of any age and ability, including those returning to the sport at any time of the year. We also offer great opportunities for those considering the sport to learn to row with us.

You can row competitively – from GB Masters and Henley and National Schools to regional regattas – or join in more socially when you have time. Our members both scull and sweep in crews or individually and we have a very wide range of boats which are used at weekends and on weekdays.

If you would like to come and meet us and have a look at where we are and what we do, please arrange a time to come down and see us at the river. We actively encourage prospective members to join us for a trial outing on our beautiful river – you’re sure to love it! Contact  Jon Garner to arrange a visit.

Other costs

You’ll need to supply your own athletic clothing which should allow ease of movement and be warm enough for the time of year. We have a supply of club clothing and there are several companies who sell rowing kit online.

When you compete in a rowing race, you will need to pay an entry fee (usually between £8 and £12 per head) and a towing charge. This is currently £7 per person, per event (juniors £5) and is used to cover the fuel costs of the person towing and – if required – the hire of a towing vehicle. You will also need to take out [ membership of British Rowing]


Membership of Avon County is open to anyone, provided they can swim at least 100 metres in light clothing. As part of your induction to rowing and to the club, important safety education will be provided and we ask that you take careful heed of this.
