Caldecotte Xperience


Experience this Olympic sport. We have a fleet of sculling boats for single scullers, doubles and quads. Learn basic skills, balance, use of the oars and strokes. Various balance games help you learn to be stable in the boat and, in the adaptive craft, you have the benefit of floats. Suitable for groups or whole classes the activities are started on land on rowing machines where you learn the basic rowing techniques, then progressed onto water and finally into inter class competitive rowing to put all the skills learned to the test.

We have a fleet of adaptive craft which can be tailored for beginners and disabled participants. We also have extended courses for those who want to take rowing a bit more seriously.

To book any of our activities please contact the centre and let us book your programme with you.
