About the club
Leeds Beckett's rowing club is unique in that it is a mixed gender society.
We compete in both indoor and outdoor competitions - including BUCS and Varsity - last year we defeated the University of Leeds in our Varsity match and were successful in all of our indoor competitions.
Being a part of our club is a great way to make friends, stay fit and compete for the university! We offer weekly social events and regular training sessions - both on the water and in the gym.
We welcome members from all rowing backgrounds - so whether you have rowed for 10 years or have never been in a boat in your life - we have a place for you!
We are a relatively small club with 30 members last season, however, we are always on the lookout for new members to grow our club each year.
- Last year we were successful in winning our annual Varsity against the University of Leeds, as well as indoor competitions entered
- We are one of a few mixed gender clubs that compete for Leeds Beckett University

As a club we train 4 times a week, with 2 land sessions, consisting of weights, circuit training and rowing ergos (rowing machines) which take place at the Headingley Campus Carnegie Sports Centre.
Our 2 water sessions take place on Wednesday and Sunday mornings at Yeadon Tarn with our coach Steve, who will teach you everything you need to know about the skill of rowing on the water.
All training times to be confirmed in due course.
No specific kit or equipment required to join just sports clothes. All participants must be able to swim.
