RowUK knows sport can change lives.

 

We believe that tasting success builds confidence and that overcoming challenge is part of reaching any goal. We also know that everyone needs support and that success is rarely achieved alone.

Our products, services, technologies, events and world class partnerships are driven by these beliefs. We serve rowers and the rowing industry, the indoor rowing and fitness community, universities and schools.

 

We are changing the sport. With sprint rowing and erg competitions in urban centres, we are more town and less gown. In bringing rowing to new audiences, our sporting concepts are as much about the spectators as they are about the athletes. We will continue to be bold, pushing and pulling until rowing is seen as a sport that provides inspiration, opportunities and a community for all. 

 

The profits we generate here at RowUK are pumped back into our programmes, reducing our dependency on traditional grants and donations that allow us to drive our programmes forward with agility and innovation.
