Bewl Bridge Rowing Club is located 8 miles SE from Tunbridge Wells and is based within the picturesque grounds of Bewl Reservoir. We have almost 4km of uninterrupted rowing along with members access to a bar, restaurant and hot showers.
The club has approximately 150 members ranging from ages 11- 78. and is very much a 'Club for all'. It has a great positive and supportive atmosphere with a large Junior section, a competitive Ladies and Men's squad along with a thriving Masters contingent.
It has a comprehensive range of Club boats and regularly 'trailers' to local events. New members are always welcome whether recreational or competitive. There is a strong team of volunteer qualified coaches and this is reflected in several members who have represented their Country at rowing and the Club's success on both the Regional circuit and at a National Level. In recent years we have competed at the World and European Veteran championships gaining medals at both rowing and sculling.

This is an amazing opportunity for Emily whose somewhat legendary determination is paying off, so for those who can follow (and cheer) please do..!!
WJ15 4x raced at Kingston Regatta - this was a first regatta race for three of the crew and the first quad race for all. The crew of Joanna Dunn, Hayley Johnson, Hannah Morten, Nina Jahnich cox Fenella Theis put in a tremendous effort and gave Guildford RC a good race over the Kingston 500m course coming second by a 1 ¼ L and beating Tiffin Sch by 2L. Thanks to many for coaching, launching, trailer help, entries and support on the day.
