Rowing is a great sport to be involved in, whatever age you are or experience you have and Falcon offers the widest range of opportunities of all Oxford rowing clubs. We have four tiers to suit all levels of rowers and reflecting an opportunity to progress:
Our “Learn To Row” courses provide an enjoyable and highly effective introduction to rowing for people of all ages (or a refresher for those picking up the sport again after a long break) and you don't have to be particularly fit to start either! By the end of the course, you will understand the basic principles of rowing technique and will have had sufficient practice to be able to confidently join in with the Club’s regular, organised group activities. We have both daytime and weekend "Learn To Row" courses available, usually starting during the Spring – Autumn period when the weather and river conditions are better, although rowing in Oxford is an all year round activity.
FALCON LEARN 2 ROW COURSES FOR ADULTS:
Falcon Rowing Club runs regular weekday and weekend Learn to Row Courses for Adults.

RECREATIONAL and TOURING ROWING
Beyond beginner, Falcon offers a wide range of recreational rowing options focused on fun, fitness and friends. These are organised into Club groups to suit availability and preference: Daytime Rowing (Tuesday and Thursday morning), Weekend & Evening Rowing (Saturday and Sunday morning plus Tuesday evening during the summer), Touring Rowing (weekends and summer evenings plus longer expeditions on the Thames and further afrield) Junior Rowing (Saturday and Sunday mornings and afternoons). We also have many competent DIY rowers who organise themselves. Falcon holds regular social events as well like riverside BBQ's, evenings at the local pub, the annual Christmas dinner, to name but a few.
Having built up sufficient confidence and competence, Falcon provides recreational rowers with the opportunity to occasionally test themselves in some of the “lighter” competitive races and regattas available locally; when an event is coming up, it really can add a little more focus and motivation to your training! We often find that once you’ve tried it, you “get the bug” but we want to make it clear that members are under no pressure from the Club to race if it’s not for them.
Falcon also offers racing opportunities on a serious, competitive basis for those who have the appetite for it and are willing and able to put in the necessary commitment; we have already produced some national champions and competition winners. Experienced, competitive rowers are also welcome as new members at Falcon who may find the environment and the flexibility we offer more to their liking.
