Rowing with Avon

We invite school leaver and adult rowers to join us for the 2021 – 2022 club season starting in September. All levels of experience are welcome.

At Avon we aim to provide the best that rowing can offer – a supportive and social environment, experienced coaches, affordable fees, and the opportunity to choose how competitive you want to be. Our crews compete at local, regional, national and international regattas (Covid-19 permitting!), and there’s an established pathway for talented athletes to row for New Zealand at age group and elite level.

We offer learn-to-row programmes in spring and autumn. Join us for your first rowing experience!

Our coaches – Alex Meates, Gareth Arnold and more!
