Learn To Row

Putney Town is pleased to announce it will be running further Learn To Row courses this summer.

Women

A learn to row course for women will be starting Tuesday 18th September 2012 (updated: the first session will be on Tuesday, with subsequent mid-week sessions on Wednesday). Women interested in taking part in the course should come along to one of two open days held on the following dates: –

  • Open Day: Sunday 9th September 2pm
  • Open Evening: Wed 12th September at 7pm

The Open Days will give you a chance to have a look around the club, take part in the Ergo Challenge and meet previous graduates of the course. If you are interested in coming to the open day, please make sure you have registered your details on the Learn To Row sign up page and let us know you are coming to the open day by emailing learntorow@nullputneytownrc.co.uk.

Men

We are hoping to be able to run a mens course for individuals who show promise in the sport around the same time.

Please register your details on the Learn To Row sign up page if you would like to be informed when the course is announced.

More information about these courses is available on the learn to row page.
