Adaptive (Para) rowing at Maidenhead Rowing Club

Sports category:

Water Sports

Overview

Adaptive rowing is for people with disabilities who participate in the sport of rowing. Anyone can get involved in rowing, regardless of physical disability, sensory or learning impairment. Adaptive Rowing is a fast-growing and increasingly competitive area of the rowing scene with a growing number of local clubs (including Maidenhead) welcoming adaptive rowers from beginner up to international levels of experience.
The Adaptive squad was formed in 2017 to encourage and enable adaptive competitive and recreational rowing at Maidenhead Rowing Club for athletes in the club catchment area, and to host adaptive rowers from visiting clubs at Maidenhead Rowing Club events.
We train on a Wednesday evening and Saturday afternoon, compete in events in the Thames Region to the Midlands, and host a programme of adaptive events at our annual summer regatta. We would love to hear from you if you would like to join us.
