Maidenhead Rowing Club has purchased two new swift touring quads to improve its ‘learn to row’ courses and introduce beginners to the sport
The club is looking to expand the evening programme for beginners, recreational rowers and its adaptive squads and the new boats will help with that.
The boats have been paid for by a grant from RBWM and the law firm McAllister Olivarius.
The boats are used to teach beginners how to row and can also be used by the club’s adaptive squads, or for longer trips by recreational rowers.
“As a club we are really committed to introducing more adults to rowing through our learn to row program and team building days,” said Kelsey Murrell, commercial officer for Maidenhead Rowing Club.
“We purchased them using a grant from the RBWM and sponsorship from the local law firm McAllister Olivarius. We are also currently fundraising to expand our gym facilities as well and hope to use these facilities not only to serve our own growing membership, but also to host programmes to benefit the wider Maidenhead community, such as a land rowing class for over people over 55.”
