Many of Reading Rowing Club’s Masters have strong rowing backgrounds, but others learnt to row from scratch at Reading and progressed to scoop National-level wins.
With over 60 members the current men’s Masters Squad is thriving and we always welcome new potential “Vets” (27 years+).
Our strong and competitive core trains and races hard throughout the year – especially across the Masters C to H categories. Others row and scull mainly for fun and fitness on one of the Thames’ finest stretches.
