Rowing (2 x Groups) (Beginners & more experienced)


Peterborough U3A Rowing Group Leader is Barry Clarkson. The group meets at the PCRC Thorpe Meadows, Peterborough, on Mondays at 10am and on Thursdays  at 1.30pm. Members may attend either or both sessions. Beginners initially attend only on a Thursday. This may be varied by special arrangements.  Expert coaching is provided and all equipment . 

New rowers/scullers are most welcome to join with the offer of a free taster session. A modest fee is levied for each session with the chance to join the rowing club later if desired.
