“Welcome to Pennine Canoe & Rowing Club, Rowing Section.   If you’ve come this far you have an interest in joining our sport and we hope you enjoy reading all about us.A group of rowers got together to join forces with Pennine Canoe Club and have been working over the past year to develop a site at Battyeford to incorporate the two sporting disciplines and Pennine Canoe & Rowing Club was born.  The new club has recently been awarded funding from Kirklees Council to develop an area of land and to build safe access to the river Calder by way of a gravelled pathway, fencing and jetty; these works are currently on-going and hope to be complete by the end of the summer 2014.In the meantime we are working with Pugneys Country Park, Wakefield and British Rowing by way of signposting you to their Learn to Row courses held throughout the summer on the lake.  Once you have completed the course you will be able to develop your skills at one of their weekly “free time” sessions on a section of the lake prior to joining the club and rowing with us on the Calder.  Included in the cost of the course is a three month subscription to British Rowing which gives you access to a wide range of information, rowing techniques, hints, tips, nutrition etc.  as well as competitions both locally and nationally.  Whether you have aspirations to be a competitive or recreational rower – there is something for everyone.  In addition you will receive your copy of Rowing & Regatta to welcome you to the sport.We give very grateful thanks to the following clubs who have very kindly donated equipment to get us on the water:

Tees Rowing Club
Sheffield URC
Cambridge CUBC – Chris Lloyd

Lancaster Rowing ClubPlease continue to look at our site for further developments however in the meantime do get in touch with us to register your interest.We look forward to hearing from you and to welcoming you to the new club – you will be sure to receive a very warm welcome.
