CLIFTON ROWING

THE HOME OF TARANAKI WATERSPORTS

ROWING FOR ALL AGES & ABILITIES

If you’re aged 14 or over, rowing is a great sport to get fit, meet new friends, have fun and potentially compete around New Zealand. Clifton Rowing Club caters for beginners in the sport and particularly encourages High School students to try it out. 

We also have an active Masters-aged rowing team (aged 27+) accepting new Members.

 

Throughout Winter, up to September is the perfect time to join the Club during an Open House session. Sign up at our Open House and your first 2 weeks of training are Free. Various Membership fees apply after that (See our How to Join section).

If you miss our Open House session, no problem, you can join the Club any time. Contact the Club directly to find out how.

 

Water-based sports always require a competent swimming ability, so please bear that in mind.

Join the fun and socialising now!

ROWING BENEFITS

You don’t have to be a competitive rower to reap the benefits of rowing. It’s good for people of all fitness levels to try.

It’s a common misconception that rowing only works the arms. In reality, rowing is a full-body workout that uses 86 percent of the muscles. The rowing stroke is actually comprised of 65 to 75 percent leg work and 25 to 35 percent upper body work. This, in turn, helps endurance, strengthens, and tones the muscles. Rowing even provides some surprising benefits for your heart and lungs. If you are looking to burn serious calories without putting added stress on your joints then rowing is for you.
